What can I expect from ergonomic training?
Treating an injury by addressing the origin before finding ways to fix it helps lower the possibility of that injury reoccurring, making your everyday life comfortable and pain-free after the training.
During your first appointment at our clinic, one of our orthopedists or sports physiotherapists will conduct an intense physical assessment and gather information about your work/home environment and previous health history. While compiling this information, questions will be asked about your work layout, nature of your job, machinery and equipment frequently used, and a summary of your regular routine. The importance of this information will help our practitioners to know what items will best improve your condition.
The main goal of ergonomic training is to improve your posture awareness, body mechanics, and energy efficiency. By making necessary modifications, adjustments, and changes, pain can be reduced, and injury can be prevented. For example, after necessary evaluation and examination have been done, you may be advised to change your computer monitor’s position or take a regular walk from your desk. In some cases, technological devices or advanced equipment like splints or wrist supports can improve your comfort while doing your normal activities.
