Ergonomics assessments aim to maximize your body’s efficiency and reduce sources of injury risk while training you how to manage the natural dynamics within you. Injuries from poor ergonomics are associated with deprivation of nutrients to the soft tissue of the body, or musculoskeletal system. This includes muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and the discs of the spine.
Localized nutrient deprivation can lead to fatigue, damage and pain. Correcting an ergonomic situation goes beyond adjusting the height of a chair and bending your knees when lifting. The skills of a trained professional can help give you all the tools necessary to be injury-free at home and work. My PT is certified in ergonomics solutions from The Back School.
