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.
“The team at Main Street Physiotherapy is amazing! Being a National Team Athlete and having seen many physiotherapists throughout my career, I have made Main Street Physiotherapy my home base. They are up to date with the latest techniques and compared to most Physio clinics, they are very hands on. In addition, they also have a great clinic, very clean, with many rooms and also an exercise facility!”
