Ergonomics is simply the study of men and women at their occupations, but more recently, it's become focused on the changes that can be made in the workplace environment to promote health and wellness, avoid injury and disability, and improve worker morale and productivity. Many ergonomically-designed spaces help support workers during the specific tasks they need to complete each day, helping to reduce strain and other issues that can contribute to or be the primary cause of significant short- or long-term disability as well as painful symptoms.
When a space is referred to as being “ergonomically designed,” it means it has been designed to support worker health – specifically, the health of the worker who uses the space to accomplish certain tasks. Using desk chairs with proper back support and adjustable height, ensuring adequate lighting to avoid leaning over desks and screens, placing anti-fatigue mats in places where employees are required to stand, and making sure computers and equipment are properly positioned to avoid overuse and repetitive strain injuries are all examples of ergonomic design.
Mission bay Chiropractic Care offers on-site work station evaluation to ensure individual work spaces incorporate important design features to reduce the risk of injury and strain while keeping employees healthier and more comfortable. Our doctors offer more than two decades of clinical experience to the ergonomic evaluation process, helping prevent workers' compensation injuries and other work-related health concerns, so San Francisco-area businesses can feel confident in the guidance they receive. Through in-depth on-site evaluations, we've helped clients like Airbnb, the Discovery Channel, the Department of Labor, Github, Tilt.com and iHeartMedia identify areas that need improvement to optimize the health of their employees at every stage of business.
We do accept all Auto Accident Insurances and some Workers' Compensation Insurances. Please call our office to confirm your insurance provider if you do not see your Insurance listed here.
