Physical Therapists and Ergonomics
As physical therapists, we understand the impact of movement and postures both normal and abnormal and their effect on the tendons, muscles and joint structures. We understand the body’s physiological responses of strain, recovery and remodeling in response to these forces.
Ergonomics Performance Solutions provides hands-on analysis of work and the worker in the industrial or home environment to assess set up, proper use of tools and physical space alignment to optimize comfort and function and minimize abnormal stresses on our musculoskeletal (MS) system. Also essential is controlling the internal factors. These include our postural habits, how we utilize the space and environment around us, how we respond to feeling of fatigue, stress or strain and how we recover from these stresses on a daily basis. That is where education and interaction with the worker is essential.
