Why is Ergonomics important and What can you do to help?
According to OSHA, repetitive strain injuries are the nation’s most common and costly occupational health problem, costing more than $20 billion per year while low back pain is the second most common cause of lost work time.
Raritan Physical Therapy Ergonomics Program
Poor office ergonomics are a likely cause of some of the strains, headaches and neck and upper back pain many of us deal with off and on. But what can you do about it? For one, if you are stuck sitting in front of a computer all day, having the correct posture can go a long way in taking care of those aches and pains.
We provide comprehensive management of work-related injuries to help cushion workers from the physical demands of their environment – from prevention, on-site evaluation, equipment handling, and one-on-one therapy to cost-effective ergonomic solutions. And we always deliver fast, timely results for client employers.
You have to counteract the negative effects of your normal daily activities on your body. And a proper work station set up will help decrease symptoms by 50%. If you are experiencing discomfort and especially if pain symptoms radiate from your neck to your shoulder, elbow or hands it is strongly recommended to get evaluated by a physical therapist to determine the level of nerve damage and take corrective measures.
