Oct 4, 17 , Amanda Horvat, DPT, discusses workspace ergonomics

Hello, my name is Amanda Horvat and I am one of the physical therapists here at In Motion physical therapy. Today I would like to talk about “ergonomics”, or the study centered on the efficiency of the worker in his or her workspace, including adapting work tasks, work stations, tools, and equipment to fit the worker. Depending on your posture and ergonomic set up, you may be putting undue stress on your neck, upper or lower back, arms and even shoulders. The most common stresses that lead to injuries at work include: awkward postures, repetitive motions, forceful exertions, pressure points, and vibration. Under these conditions muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves can be damaged. The good news is you don’t have to wait for a problem before you address it. Physical therapists have extensive training in assessing work stations for the possible stresses your work may be placing on your body and give recommendations for change, whether that be posture while sitting at a desk, stress with awkward postures, or the stress of lifting heavy items. Thank you for watching and if you are having pain or think you would benefit from an ergonomic evaluation with one of our physical therapist please call.
