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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. McKelvey has been great throughout my entire time going to his practice. Very informative, no sugar coating and has provided me with a great wellness plan. I've NEVER been to a chiropractor who is this thorough and genuine. Front desk staff is just amazing! The ladies are super friendly and helpful. So far I am very happy with my experience, and I am feeling 10x better after several visits, which is great since I spent months trying alternative options for back pain and experienced no relief. I look forward to continuing my health wellness plan with Dr. McKelvey to improve and maintain my overall well-being!"
