What is Ergonomics?
The applied science of setting up an appropriate workstation and work strategies that are best suited for the human body to work effectively by minimizing fatigue, discomfort, or emotional stress is known as ergonomics.
Ergonomics are necessary to help one understand the needs of their body and not overload it with more than what it is capable of.
Ergonomics and Chiropractic:
Most jobs across the country are office jobs and office jobs require one to be sitting in a single posture all day long doing paperwork or looking at the computer. An inappropriate stance can cause back and neck pain. This is one of the majority reasons for the frequent visits to a doctor. The good news? Neck and back pains can be effectively treated by natural means without the intake of pain medications. That is where your chiropractors play a major role.
Unwanted stress on your spine can lead to chronic back pain which causes great discomfort and hinders your everyday life activities too. Proper usage can reduce your back pain and improve your posture. Improper posture such as slouching while you are working can cause back pain and the best way to improve posture is to make use of an ergonomic office chair. They are designed in such a way as to reduce the pressure and strain on your neck, mid-back, and lower back. The chair positions your body in such a way that your spine is properly aligned and the elbows, thighs, and calves are also positioned correctly. Being conscious about the way you sit, walk and stand go a great way to improve your posture. Keep your shoulders relaxed, that doesn’t mean you have to slouch, stretch often and relax your joints and muscles.
