The key component for successful ergonomics is to fit the work to the worker, versus the other way around. We want to ensure that a work station is conducive to optimal well-being and function of job performance thereby modifying according to each individual, as ergonomics eliminates discomfort and the risk of injury due to the work environment.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
At Multicare Health clinic, our understanding of your work station is paramount. From that point, we'll recommend treatment and care based on whether your work is active, sedentary, multi-functional, or demanding. Active employment requires strong bones, muscles, and joints. Our skilled team in Sioux City offers rehabilitative therapy that coincides with your job functions.
Sedentary employment, or "desk jobs," are the most common types that require healthy ergonomics. Sitting for lengths of time can be unhealthy and difficult for every body part. Unless you're taking regular breaks to stretch and walk, chances are your posture is suffering. That's where chiropractic care comes to your rescue! We'll give you specific exercises and stretches that help mobility and eliminate postural challenges. Our team also can suggest proper daily nutrition habits during the course of your day that will improve your diet to minimize inflammation.
Standing desks have also become very popular in recent years. Employers are providing their workers with the option to stand in their work stations, with anti-fatigue mats underneath their feet, ensuring a healthy environment to gain employee retention.
