One Mission

To help managers reduces the risk of MSD and create ouchless workplaces.

Ugo Akpala-Alimi

Chartered Physiotherapist. Masters in Ergonomics. Workplace Musculoskeletal Health Specialist.


Ergohealth was founded to help managers reduce musculoskeletal disorders in your workplace.

Making it easy for you to make tweaks to your work processes without losing sleep. Giving you the resources and roadmap you help you successfully manage work-related musculoskeletal disorder (MSD).

So your workers can go back working pain-free.



Why I do What I do?

I still treat patients who have been injured at work. It’s frustrating seeing them struggle to return to work. And oftentimes, a little tweak in their working conditions or the tools and equipment they use at work makes all the difference.

For too long, musculoskeletal disorder has been addressed as one of many injuries in the workplace. And for too long we wait till an employee gets injured before we do something about it.

I’m tired of seeing injured workers. I’m tired of seeing exasperated managers. I’m tired of seeing 40% of workplace ill-health attributed to musculoskeletal disorder.

 Aren’t you too?

Why Work With Me

Years as a Chartered Physiotherapist

Graduated with M.Sc in Ergonomics

Yeras of Consulting for companies

Patients and workers asssesed and treated

Moved to the UK in 2005, I have worked both in the NHS (hospital and GP practices) and various occupational health teams including IPRS and Back in Action UK. I assessed, treated and resolved musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries. And seen over 9,000 patients.

Qualified in 2012 from Loughborough University with a Masters degree in Ergonomics for Health Professionals. I have worked with numerous companies including Veolia, BP and UK Power Network (UKPN). Conducted various ergonomic assessments from Manual Handling to Noise and Vibration Surveys.


I love helping companies address work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) risks in their workplace. With my combined knowledge of being both a physiotherapist and Ergonomist, I help companies create the ideal roadmap to successfully resolve pain and injuries in both office and industrial settings.



It’s easy to get lost in the mumble jumble of musculoskeletal health. But, I get it and love to break it down. To help you easily navigate your way and help your workers.


I adhere to strict evidence-based practice. Giving the best solutions that would resolve your issues in timely manner. But make no mistake, I’m not boring.
