Have aches and pains? Could be from your work set-up!

Home offices aren’t always built for optimal musculoskeletal health. That’s why Performance is offering COMPLIMENTARY virtual ergonomic assessments from June 25th through July 1st!

The home ergonomic assessments will be a private 15-minute video consultation via Zoom performed by one of our certified physical therapists. We will observe your work-from-home set-up while taking you through a series of questions to assess your environment. Based on your answers, we will provide suggestions to maximize your comfort and optimize your workspace. A summary of personalized recommendations will be emailed to you following the assessment.

The FDA defines ergonomics as “the scientific study of people at work.” We have all heard of ergonomic-friendly chairs, desks and mouse pads, but what does it actually mean?

An ergonomically-sound workplace is one that is designed to minimize work-related musculoskeletal injuries. Common work-related injuries attributed to poor ergonomics at a desk job include:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Nerve compression
  • Sciatica

A thorough ergonomic assessment conducted by a qualified professional, such as a physical therapist, can make improvements to your current set up to decrease your risk for work-related injury, discomfort, or stress.
