I treat many people that suffer from chronic shoulder, neck and back strain that is aggravated by improper positioning at work. While they experience temporary relief from their symptoms after a treatment, returning to work in an unhealthy work station is counterproductive.
Think of how many hours you spend a week at your work space. Have you ever considered the impact your work day has on your body? Is your work space set up properly to decrease the risk of injury and strain? You’ll be surprised that even the smallest adjustments can make a huge impact on your short and long term health.
I’ve attached a quick link from an Ergonomic Consultancy Firm, Ergonomics Plus, that shares some good tips and reminders for a basic work space assessment and set up. Have a look, make some changes and see what better positioning and posture will do for you!
