It is critical to evaluate the proper set up of your work environment because it is often the cause of most stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel in your wrist.

Because many people spend almost half of all of their waking hours sitting at a desk, it is important that your chair, desk and other equipment help your body maintain good posture and alignment. A healthy work station involves being aware of your seating, keyboard and mouse, computer monitor position and glare, telephone position, feet position, lighting and proper positioning of your work. It is critical to evaluate the proper set up of your work environment because it is often the cause of most repetitive stress injuries.

Things like improper chair position, cradling the phone between your ear and shoulder, or straining your neck to look at your computer monitor is not a big deal every once in a while, but when you do the same repetitive motions for several hours a day, several days a week, several weeks a month and so on, you will find that your body eventually has to give and in many cases will suffer pain, discomfort, poor posture and spinal disc damage. Unfortunately, most people don't correlate these problems to their day-to-day activity because they think it has to be caused by a specific traumatic event. That's just not the case. Check out these articles on what you need to know about proper set up of your work environment.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was so pleased with the quality of your services that I've already scheduled appointments for my three boys, convinced my husband to switch over to your office, and printed off your forms for a colleague and his family. Everything about your office has exceeded my expectations….from the way the massage sheets smell to the bottle of water that was handed to me after my massage. Thank you for such a positive experience and for putting me back on the road to a healthy spine and happier life."

I want you to know I truly appreciate all the effort you gave. My back is feeling much better. Again, thank you! You are a great staff."
