PRESENTED BY: Katy Gavin, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Family Achievement Center

 
Using proper body mechanics can play a key role in preventing and rehabilitating discomfort. Repetitive activities at work can put stress on your body, especially on the back and neck, which then can lead to pain and injuries. This presentation will discuss how to use correct body mechanics along with how to assess and modify your workspace in order to perform your daily work activities without causing bodily stress.

This session will be led by physical therapists who have extensive education on the human body and musculoskeletal system and have experience evaluating the forces at work in the body. The presenters will educate you on best practices for sitting and moving at work and provide strategies for modifying your workstation in order to prevent injury and decrease pain.
