Home Ergonomic Assessments to Improve Poor Positioning

Ergonomics is defined by the study of the relation of man to the environment in which he works and the application of anatomical, physiological, psychological, and engineering knowledge to the problems involved.  Position is defined by the way in which something is placed and the arrangement of body parts. We are so busy going about our day that we do not realize that the positioning of our bodies within our environment is a huge component of how our bodies can function in space. The smallest change in our postures while we perform daily activities can make a huge difference and may even decrease our pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. Repetitive poor positioning of our body can lead to:

  • Asymmetrical alignment

  • Sub-optimal positioning of joints which can lead to stiffness, decreased mobility, decreased 

      bio-mechanical rhythm 

  • Over-shortening of muscles which can lead to tightness, spasticity, abnormal movement, and pain

  • Over-lengthening of muscles which can lead to weakness and instability

  • Stress on our tendons

Sciatica Treatment

After six months of suffering sciatica, going to a chiropractor and acupuncture with no relief, I found this company and Dr. Kimberly Seman whom after 4 or 5 visits rendered me pain free. She is so knowledgeable about the body and I knew instantly after our first session I was on my way to recovery. I must also add how very sweet and kind she was as she performed her skills on me. I will be forever grateful to her.
