Proper Workplace Ergonomics

Proper Workplace Ergonomics

Many jobs repetitive motion to perform certain actions. Just about every type of employment puts employees at risk of repetitive stress injury that can lead to limited movement and chronic pain. This includes office workers and construction workers alike. At Birmingham Wellness Center in Birmingham, MI, our chiropractor is here to help you find relief from chronic pain caused by a work injury. Our chiropractor also instructs patients in proper workplace ergonomics to prevent pain and tension from returning in the future.

Your Body Suffers Due to Poor Ergonomics

When you engage in a repetitive movement such as lifting, turning, twisting, or flexing in a specific movement time and again, you're loading and unloading your body unevenly. Over time, your body adapts by strengthening the muscles in certain regions while others stay undeveloped. The spine also suffers from twisting and turning, and uneven development or poor posture can lead to chronic stress and misalignment in the vertebrae. Unevenly developed muscles can put torque on the spine and result in limited movement.

Preventing Repetitive Stress Issues and Injuries Through Ergonomics

The best way to minimize pain and limited movement from a work injury are to practice good ergonomics. Avoid twisting motions and plant feet at shoulder width when lifting. People who work desk jobs should keep their keyboards as close to their laps as possible while elevating monitors to eye level to keep the back straight. For more help with ergonomic posture and relief from repetitive stress, see our chiropractor for guidance and advice.
