Our bodies function in an asymmetrical world where one-size-does-not-fit-all. The movements and activities performed on a daily and periodic basis stress the muscles and joints. The stress placed on the mechanical components of the body demand life-long posture and ergonomic practices to preserve joint lining, spinal disc height, manage scar tissue and resist the damages from “wear and tear”. My PT suggests practices to maximize efficiency of movement, conserve energy during activity, and apply principles of the stress/strain relationship with body mechanics.
How can changing Posture and Ergonomics help?
- Prevent injury at the root cause.
- Protect individuals with posture strengthening, body mechanics practice and healthy culture education.
- Improve safety from injuries to the muscles, joints, and nerves during activity.
- Assess and reduce injury-risk whether you are in the office, in the factory, or in the field.
- Save money from the cost of an injury by minimizing the risk exposure.
- Improve body awareness and health culture.
