3 Great Ways to Improve Workspace Ergonomics
We at Falling Waters Injury and Health Management Center in Bend OR is on a mission to help every last desk job worker create the ideal ergonomic environment to help avoid back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more. A healthy workspace protects you from many forms of pain and health issues.
We’ve treated hundreds of patients whose health problems have been exacerbated by poor posture and an unhealthy desk setup. Here are three great ways to improve workspace ergonomics
1. Invest in an ergonomic chair
Sitting all day disengages spine-supporting abdominal and back muscles. If standing isn’t an option, invest in an ergonomic chair. Wobble chairs in particular promote better spinal disc health, allow you to breathe better, increase blood flow, and more.
2. Get a better desk
The perfect desk height varies from person to person. You know it’s right when your elbows are at a 90-degree angle when typing, your feet are flat on the floor while your knees are also at a 90-degree angle. Optimal desk height is shown to lower the risk of related musculoskeletal disorders, reduce stress, improve focus and productivity, and promote better health.
3. Set your computer monitor to the right level
Having your monitor sitting too high or too low can cause eye and neck strain. Optimal positioning is directly in front of you with the center of the screen at eye level, and without any glare or flicker. Both cause headache-inducing eye strain.
