Ergonomic Treatment Tailored For You
Office work environments are quite different from industrial ones. However, they can still involve a lot of repetitive movements and sedentary positions. Ergonomics is a way of optimizing function and activity in your everyday office tasks. It can help you prevent injuries by making adjustments. South Barrie Health Group can offer you the tailored ergonomic treatment you need.
Ergonomics in the Workplace
According to the statistics, implementing ergonomics in the workplace can reduce injury and illness costs by up to 40%. The most common workplace-related injuries are caused by bad posture, too much sitting, and incorrect workspace setup. These ailments include tendonitis, rotator cuff strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, and back pain.
Good ergonomics can save employers’ and employees’ money on medical bills and decreased productivity. These principles apply across environments, from work to sports, making you feel comfortable in your daily life.
How Will Your Ergonomic Treatment Look Like?
During the first appointment, our physical therapist will conduct an ergonomic assessment and review your medical history and daily routine to determine what changes you should implement. It could include changing your equipment setup, creating time reminders, and advising on using splints and supports.
Physical therapists at South Barrie Health Group can offer additional treatment if required due to the deficiency of ergonomics in your life. These are exercises, manual therapy, joint mobilization, and more to relieve your pain.
At home or in the office, it is essential to invest in good ergonomic habits for the sake of your body and mind. Take adequate breaks, look away from screens for at least 20 seconds every 20 minutes, and ensure comfortable positioning for laptops with external mice and keyboards.
