Ergonomics & Posture Services
Ergonomics & Posture Care Programs
Many people suffer from back pain and most often, these problems get worse over time. PRN's highly-skilled therapists can design a custom treatment program based on your specific needs using an evidence-based approach. Following a thorough evaluation, we will use a combination of hands-on techniques, modalities and supervised exercises designed to relieve pain and gain functional strength. Our goal is to deliver effective, lasting pain relieve in the shortest amount of time.
Who can benefit from an ergonomic assessment?
This assessment is appropriate for those looking to prevent injury, people starting to experience problems, those being treated for an injury related to their job, or those looking to improve how they feel throughout the work day.
Advantages of Ergonomics include:
- Reduction of employees experiencing pain
- Increased employee morale and productivity
- Fewer injuries
- Reduced absenteeism
An ergonomic assessment is an evaluation to determine if a work station is appropriately set up for an individual to be able to work at their most optimal level throughout the day. In addition to looking at the work station, our therapists review job tasks and how they are performed. Recommendations are made on the appropriate work station set-up including: chair, monitor, keyboard and mouse, telephone, work space, paperwork, etc.
A PRN therapist will provide instructions on what to do during the day to maintain posture and flexibility. Implementing these solutions can make employees more comfortable and increase productivity.
