Freehold Chiropractor, Dr. Russell Brokstein, reviews ergonomics at your work station.
Every day people go to work and sit at their desks for hours at a time. There is no wonder people experience neck pain, back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, aches and pains.
It is extremely important for people to make sure their work station is set up ergonomically correct. Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between workers and their environment, especially the equipment they use. The applied science of equipment design, as for the workplace, is intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort.
Physical ergonomics at work is concerned with postural and biomechanical characteristics as they relate to physical activity. The relevant topics include working postures, materials handling, repetitive movements, work-related musculoskeletal disorders, workplace layout, safety and health.
The picture to the left can help you set up your desk, chair, computer screen, keyboard and mouse and guide you to proper posture to help reduce work related injuries. It’s also important to note to take breaks every 30 minutes. During these breaks, get up, walk around and stretch.
Ergonomics is one key in helping patients correct the underlying cause of their problems. Taking these simple steps at work can help you in reducing your neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, and stress.
