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 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.
Where are you when your body says “something isn’t right”?
Ergonomic assessments help to:
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 an organization money from the cost of an injury by minimizing the risk exposure to its #1 asset, the worker.
Open the door to On-Site PT or custom service agreements within a group whose individuals participate in similar job duties, skills or athletics.
