At Kensington Physio & Sports Medicine we offer workstation assessments to ensure that you are providing the right environment for your employees, to reduce health risks and absences.

We have a number of highly skilled physiotherapists who are experienced in performing specialised ‘workstation assessments’ (WSA)  for employees. In particular for those individuals who may be suffering from back and neck pain, or arm and shoulder pain.


Call us on 020 7603 0040 for a quote and availability.

Our assessments include checking that staff are sitting correctly at their desks, that they are not working in a way that could encourage physio injuries, as well as recommendations for any improvements.

Who do we work with?

We have experience working with small, medium and large offices in London with a track record for improving employee welfare. We recommend workplace assessments are reviewed as necessary and even on an annual basis, which can be organised with us in advance to ensure best practise at all times.

You should also consider assessments for any new staff members or teams, when you recognise there is a new hazard at work or if you notice increased levels of stress or sickness.

Where do we work?

We have several premises and are based predominantly in Kensington. We offer workplace assessments centrally, including Chelsea, Notting Hill, Shepherd’s Bush, Hammersmith, Belgravia, Westminster, Mayfair, Pimlico, Fulham, White City, Shiswick, Battersea, Clapham, Vauxhall and across the City of London.

If you would like to book our services but aren’t sure if we cover your location, please get in touch.

Receive a comprehensive report of our assessment

We will provide a comprehensive report for the Human Resources Manager or Occupational Health Advisor of the company who can then action any changes required.

It is highly recommended that a WSA is performed as part of a general occupational health check at any company where employees are regularly sitting for prolonged periods. For those symptoms that fail to respond once the set up has been corrected then additional physiotherapy treatment may be beneficial.

Occupational Health at work has an important role to play in the welfare of company employees and correct management of musculoskeletal injuries should really be a priority.

Workplace wellbeing

At Kensington Physio, in addition to workstation assessments, we now offer the following call outs to work places:

Back care workshops

Research figures show that British workers take an average of 12 days off a year with back pain.

According to the study, two fifths of workers (40%) who spend the majority of their time at work sitting do not feel that they are able to take regular breaks.

This is in spite of almost half (45%) of people who have experienced back or neck pain identifying sitting for long periods of time as a trigger for their condition.

The research follows new analysis of The Lancet research series on low back pain, which highlights that musculoskeletal pain causes almost half of work absences in the EU.

Holistic wellbeing

What is Holistic Wellbeing?

Exercise has been found to reduce stress, increase positive mood, decrease anxiety and alleviate depression. But you may not know that the emotional wellbeing associated with exercise is also linked to key attributes that can help us while we work. Evidence suggests that, as a result, we are more likely to avoid job burnout, sleep more easily and be more engaged at work.

How can we help your business?
