Ergonomics is the study of people's efficiency in the workplace. It takes into account the worker's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that the tasks required, equipment used, and the worker's environment suit each individual worker. Safe lifting techniques, proper posture, computer height, appropriate seating position, and adaptive equipment are only a few of the many examples of ergonomics in the workplace. Poor ergonomics can lead to acute traumatic injuries or repetitive strain injuries (RSI).
Our physiotherapists are well educated to provide an ergonomic assessment in the home or in the workplace.
“I came to Mike after a car accident in December 2013. I have never had a care provider who has done as much as he has to help me get better and who has focused on the entirety of the situation and how it can affect healing instead of just the immediate problem at hand. It has been a long road, but he uses a variety of techniques (including large needles which terrify me, but I have to admit work incredibly well) and is always looking beyond just the symptoms for the actual causes. Since getting pregnant while still rehabilitating, he has been able to provide exercises and ideas to help with the pain that has come from the changes due to pregnancy coupled with the previous problems before. He’s even managed to find ways to alleviate pain that is considered “normal” and just par for the course. I simply can’t recommend Mike enough and already have sent anyone who is in need his way.”
