WHAT IS ERGONOMICS?
Ergonomics is the evaluation of a person's environment either at work or home. With a client specific assessment, our experts find the optimal setup for your workspace. We have worked with clients in better arrangement of their office/home setup.
Due to stressful load on tissues and nerves, repetitive strain injuries can arise from poorly positioned equipment, postural issues, or muscle imbalances. We work one on one with our clients to optimize their environment to increase safety and reduce the risk of injury or pain. Improved ergonomics can also make time spent in prolonged positions more comfortable.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM ERGONOMIC PHYSICAL THERAPY?
We see clients for ergonomics consults both in person and virtually. Whether you work in an office, warehouse, factory or on a stage. Even small adjustments to personalize your work set up can make a significant role in avoiding or improving symptoms.
HOW DOES AN ERGONOMIC / WORK-FROM-HOME EVALUATION WORK?
One of our ergonomic experts will thoroughly evaluate your environment, whether that is a home office or more traditional work space (office, factory, performance stage, etc). This may include equipment (desk, computer, or other instruments needed in your daily tasks). We use pictures, videos or on-site assessments. The in-person physical assessment will allow your therapist to add stretching or strengthening exercises to make sure you reduce your discomfort and work to avoid future injury.
