Ergonomics is the science of work and a person’s relationship with the work environment. The word is derived from two Greek words: ergon, meaning work, and nomoi, meaning laws, to create ergonomics. Ergonomic advice involves making a client’s workplace more comfortable and efficient in order to reduce their symptoms, such as pain or muscle tightness, and prevent them from occurring in the first place. Simple specific suggestions from changing the placement of a computer or keyboard, the use of a headset or footrest, proper lumbar support, and stretches to do right from a workstation can make a significant difference, especially when you consider the amount of time you invest at work. Other postural advice to consider include the best sleep positions (along with the use of a supportive mattress and cervical pillow), proper form for workouts, recreational activities, and housekeeping. The right positioning can prevent injury, maintain proper spinal alignment, and improve your balance and self-esteem.
