Repetitive movements, or habitual lack of movement – as in sitting all day - can lead to tendonitis, muscle strains, herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome and pain! Recent studies have linked sitting to heart disease, diabetes and premature death, and exercise doesn’t seem to affect this unfortunately.
Whether your job requires you to sit in front of a computer screen all day, or you work a job that requires you to perform similar movements like a line assembly worker or a chef, Victory Performance and Physical Therapy can help. We can come to your job site to offer ergonomic consultations or you can come to us with a picture of you interacting in your work environment. Your ergonomic consultation will also include tips to help you stay more active throughout the day and instruction in stretches and therapeutic exercises that will be beneficial in reducing and preventing pain.
