A huge part of maintaining good chiropractic health, however, is making sure you have good habits at home and in the workplace. This is why Hood View Chiropractic encourages Gresham patients to practice good ergonomics.
What Is Ergonomics?
The word “ergonomics” is derived from two Latin words — “ergon,” meaning work, and “nomos,” meaning laws. Ergonomics is now known as the engineering or design of the workplace or job to fit the worker. There are two main factors to consider in ergonomics — environmental factors and physical factors. Environmental factors refer to things like area noise, lighting, air quality, and temperature. Environmental factors can cause effects like allergies, fatigue, headaches, stuffy or running nose, and excessive sweating. Physical factors, on the other hand, include the position of the chair, desk, computer, and other areas of the workspace that can have effects such as stresses on joints, nerves, bones, and muscles.
Why Is Ergonomics Important To Chiropractic Health?
Most of us spend a good deal of our time at work, so making sure that we are doing healthy things for our bodies while working is incredibly important. Not practicing good ergonomics while at work can result in conditions for pain such as carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, tendinitis, and trigger finger in addition to the effects mentioned above. What good ergonomics looks like for you will depend upon your particular job. It is important to consult with your chiropractor as to the best practices for your workday.
