Proper Workplace Ergonomics

work injury

A comfortable workspace helps you feel your best, perform better, and do more. However, suppose you are struggling with getting things done at work or experiencing aches and pains associated with sitting for extended periods. In that case, it might be time to give your workspace an ergonomic makeover.

If you sit at a desk and suffer from limited movement, chronic stress, or any other work-related conditions, it is time to change things up and learn how to create a workspace using proper ergonomics. Our chiropractors at Davis Family Chiropractic and Massage in Vancouver can help you update and establish an ergonomic workspace.

Office Ergonomics

Adding an ergonomic chair is one of the first things people think of when looking to improve their office environment. An ergonomic chair is adjustable, allowing your feet to rest flat on the floor with your thighs parallel to the floor. In addition, the armrests allow your arms to sit comfortably to the side with relaxed shoulders, helping limit repetitive stress and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

How to Help Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Having key objects, such as a stapler, phone, pens, and printed materials, close to the body minimizes the need to reach for things, which can cause repetitive stress in the arms, shoulders, and back. To reduce Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms, place the keyboard and mouse on the same surface at an easy-to-reach distance providing limited movement between the two.
