“I have nagging lower back pain for many months which I ignored and thinking that it will go away sooner or later. However, I have trouble sleeping and completing a simple task is a challenge. One day, I had much difficulty to get out of bed due to severe back pain!”
My ‘miseries’ continued with going to Doctors, Hospital, physiotherapy and swallowing bottles of medications and they did little to ease my sufferings.
Finally, I decided to call Occupational Health as suggested by the Doctor.
After reporting my symptoms to the Nurse, the site rgonomist came to assess my work station, and recommended a few simple actions such as correct sitting posture, taking micro breaks and use of a foot rest, my recovery was sooner than expected! I only wish I had gone to see our nurse sooner; I may not have to suffer.
