Ergonomics is the process of fitting a workspace to the worker, rather than the worker to the workspace. Physical therapists are well suited to help assess a workspace and recommend modifications to reduce risk factors.
Common workspace risk factors include:
- Awkward or prolonged postures
- Forceful gripping
- Repetitive activities
- Heavy and overhead lifting
- Pushing and pulling
Here at ActiveNW Physical Therapy & Wellness, we can either do an ergonomic assessment in our clinic with a simulated setup, or we can come to your jobsite for a detailed assessment. Contact us for pricing.
ActiveNW Physical Therapy & Wellness is a one-on-one clinic, where our therapists take time with each patient to focus on their needs. We offer many different techniques and services for our patients to meet them where they are.
