What is ergonomics?

Ergonomics is a specialty area that focuses on finding the best physical fitness between the worker and the conditions of the job, allowing for efficient and correct posture and use of the body. The primary goal is to ensure that a person is able to carry out their job in a safe and comfortable manner with less stress on the body. Staring at a computer for a prolonged period, sitting in an awkward position, and not using correct body mechanics when using office tools and equipment — all these habits can lead to musculoskeletal injuries or repetitive use injuries.

What problems may arise due to poor ergonomics?

The significance of good posture, appropriate lifting techniques, and proper tool use may be overlooked by today’s employers. Fortunately, Dr. Go likes to emphasize how all these factors should be considered along with other good health indicators like diet, exercise, adequate sleep, and stress management.

Poor posture and muscle overuse can result in your body’s bones, muscles, ligaments, and joints becoming misaligned and functioning incorrectly. It may also indicate problems with nerve impingement and related pain and discomfort, resulting in improper functioning throughout the body. People with poor ergonomics may have difficulty moving and working, as well as suffer from back pain, a pins and needles sensation, chronic headaches, and fatigue or exhaustion.

What conditions indicate poor ergonomics?

Poor ergonomics can cause a variety of aches and pains in the body. Overuse injuries, such as neck pain, low back pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome, are common. Other issues often related to poor ergonomics at work include fatigue in the right shoulder from mouse use or neck pain from staring at a computer screen all day. Chronic headaches are common due to an impingement in the neck and patients also frequently suffer from fatigue.

What are the benefits of ergonomic rehabilitation?

Correcting poor ergonomics gives a person a new lease on life. You are able to go about your daily activities with more energy and less stress on the body. Supporting and using your body appropriately boost the functioning of your entire body, giving your body’s organs the opportunity to function appropriately. Changes that help improve ergonomics in white collar jobs may include altering computer screens, computer keyboards, and desk chairs so that you are sitting with proper alignment. Dr. Go will also provide recommendations on proper posture and body mechanics. Call the clinic for more information.
