DESK ERGONOMICS

by Jennifer King, PTA

Elkins Clinic


Do you spend the majority of your day working at a desk/computer? Do you have neck/back/shoulder/wrist pain following a long day at work? Desk ergonomics have a direct effect on your postural health and ability to avoid pain from poor postural positioning.

There are specific ways to set-up your desk to allow for improved posture and in turn less pain/fatigue following a day at work. There is an easy to follow, step-by-step guide available to help maintain neutral posture while at work. Take time to visit the Department of Labor site and pass this information on to a friend or coworker as well. This is a great tool for managers to use to allow for less time missed at work and improved productivity as your employees will be in less pain and more energized as a result of good desk posture!
