Workplace Posture and Ergonomics

Chiropractic care is an effective treatment option for many individuals. The investment a person makes in obtaining care pays off with maximum benefit when the work or home office is set up correctly. Choosing the wrong position to sit, sitting for extended periods of time, or simply having a poor chair/desk space can reduce the health benefits of chiropractic adjustments. HealthMax Chiro will provide consultation to ensure our clients see long-term benefits while under our care. We are also able to meet with employers and review workspaces to ensure that you are setting your team up for success. We are familiar with the United States Department of Labor guidelines for office comfort and how to reduce repetitive stress injuries (RSIs).

Ergonomics is more than just having good posture. It is about maintaining proper alignment and body mechanics while interacting with our environment. Many companies are starting to realize the importance of having proper ergonomics in the workplace to prevent injury and reduce workman’s comp claims. There are several benefits of having proper ergonomics in the workplace in addition to the obvious reduction of injury. Ergonomics improves productivity when workstations are designed with efficiency and ease of movement in mind. Ergonomics also improves quality of work because workers will be expending positive energy instead of becoming fatigued. Employees also notice when a company is putting forth genuine effort to ensure health and safety. This leads to improved staff retention and a culture of optimism. Healthy employees are more satisfied employees.

    Caitlin’s Testimonial
  • I had been suffering with severe migraine headaches and neck pain. It affected my work performance and my home life. I saw multiple doctors, visited the emergency room, was prescribed medication, had blood tests and had a CT scan with no results. When I first came to HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson, they were very welcoming and showed real concern for my condition. They took the time to do a full exam, take digital x-rays and show me what was going on in my spine that was causing the headaches. The adjustments and low tech therapeutic exercises made me feel much, much better. I haven’t had a migraine or headache since the beginning of August! The Dr and the team at HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson are absolutely wonderful and I recommend them to all of my friends. I don’t believe I would have gotten better if I had not come here.

  • “Having a very active lifestyle I know the importance of Chiropractic Care. Weightlifting activity, kids and after a couple of car accidents, it has become more prevalent. Finding the right Chiropractor that understands your body and can implement a care plan can sometimes be hard to find. I have seen numerous Chiropractors over the last 15 years but most were just back-crackers at best. After coming to HealthMax the first time, I knew I had found the right place. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for proper treatment.”
