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.
