The advantage of having a physical therapist who is also an ergonomic specialist on our team is validating the saying that, one size does not fit all. What works for a tall person may not work for someone short, what works for an athlete may not apply to a couch potato. Whatever the body size, shape and personal limitations, the goal of ergonomics is to evaluate the total human being, both mental and physical, then apply sound principles to each individual's needs. Whether you're in the kitchen, working heavy machinery or sitting at a desk, the practice of good ergonomics will provide health benefits now and in the long run helping you feel more invigorated, comfortable and productive.
Combining the knowledge of ergonomics with restorative therapy has had a profound effect on clients who are looking not only for a proactive way to recover quickly, but also a way to stay healthy and prevent further injuries as we live our best life.
By the way, did you know that a prescription from your primary care physician is no longer required for a consultation with a physical therapist? So feel free to make a date with our therapist today.
