The science of ergonomics draws from a number of disciplines, including:
• Industrial hygiene
More specifically, the goal of ergonomics is to eliminate discomfort and risk of injury associated with the overuse of your muscles and tendons due to awkward posture and repetitive tasks. Ergonomics helps make it so that equipment fits both your physical capabilities and limitations.
Ergonomic stressors include:
• The force required to complete your job
• Awkward or static working postures needed to complete a task
• Repetitiveness of a task
Improves worker safety
Ergonomics lowers injury rates, leading to reduced absences as you are less likely to need to recover from muscle soreness, fatigue, and other injury-related issues.
Ergonomics makes jobs easier and more comfortable to do by reducing the physical effort needed to complete tasks.
Implementing ergonomics reduces turnover because employees have jobs that fit their physical capacity.
Ergonomics isn’t just used in the workplace. There are several ways to include ergonomics at home, including:
Regular chairs cause you to sit in unnatural, static positions that result in physical discomfort. Wobble seats provide both stability and flexibility, allowing for a wide range of movement at a large desk or work area. They also assist with neuromuscular re-education (NMR).
The doctors at Chiropractic Life Center show you how to use Denneroll products for optimal posture and spinal alignment.
Spinal molding fulcrums
Spinal molding fulcrums are foam padding that offers neck and back support.
Should you find yourself in pain due to poor ergonomic conditions, the doctors at Chiropractic Life Center can help retrain the spine and body to be a normal position and show you the proper way to do neck wall traction through the use of the Pettibon System, as well as with stabilization techniques and strengthening exercises.
If you have an injury, work-related or otherwise, Dr. John Paul or Dr. Lara use motion X-rays to diagnose and treat you appropriately. Call (760) 783-0105 to make an appointment today.
