ERGONOMICS IN PHYSIOTHERAPY
Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace to fit your body. You've probably heard about it before—how it can help contain workers' compensation costs for employers, improve productivity in the workplace, improve the quality of work, reduce absenteeism and help employers comply with government regulations regarding work environments. But did you know that it can also help prevent injuries? We provide group classes and workshops for corporates to educate and train their employees about a strong workplace ergonomics. Our ergonomics improvement process reduces ergonomic risk factors such as high task repetition, forceful exertions and repetitive/sustained awkward postures. We study the various characteristics of your work and design an efficient physiotherapy exercise program for you. An extensive analysis of your work and environment is done by our physiotherapists to help you adjust and strengthen your body accordingly.
ERGONOMICS FOR WORK-LIFE BALANCE
Ergonomics is also important because it helps employers comply with government regulations regarding work environments. Therefore, office ergonomics are crucial for the occupational health of employees. Only a physical therapist will be able to make workstation assessment, and ergonomic assessment to avoid musculoskeletal disorders and also help in injury prevention.
Workplace injury, particularly musculoskeletal injuries due to poor posture can be avoided with ergonomic training. Poor ergonomics causes pelvic pain, tennis elbow, chronic pain, rotator cuff injury, foot pain, neck strain, tension headaches, and median nerve entrapment. Work related injury is largely ergonomic injury where the chair, monitor or desk could be the culprits.
Poor posture is ofcourse one primary reason, but the neck pain and knee pain could be caused by companies not following industry standard ergonomic principles. These human factors could lead to overuse injury due to the repetitive work tasks. Occupational injuries, such as pelvic pain and shoulder pain, can be overcome with posture correction and strengthening exercises.
