What Is Ergonomics?

July 12, 2018

Ergonomics literally means the study of people’s efficiency in their work environment.  Musculoskeletal injuries from repetitive work or work-related activities can lead to significant pain and loss of wages and productivity.  Neck and back pain are among the most common complaints of musculoskeletal complaints in the workplace.

Emphasis on an optimized, comfortable work environment and proper education on proper lifting and handling techniques have been shown to decrease work-related musculoskeletal complaints and increase worker satisfaction.  Additionally, a regular stretching and strengthening program of at-risk joints and muscle groups can also help minimize the risk of pain and injury.

SimpleTherapy has a variety of stretching and strengthening programs designed to build strength and flexibility to joints, spine, and muscle groups to minimize the risk of strain or injury in the workplace.
