    Virtual Lunch & Learn

    The Power of Posture and Ergonomics on Pain and Posture


    Zeena Dhalla will review the benefits of integrating a posture and ergonomics program into your work force. The presentation will highlight the science around posture therapy and ergonomics and how it can benefit workers, especially those working from home.

    We will review good posture and what it looks like, common posture deviations and how sitting posture and ergonomics can impact musculoskeletal disorders. We will also review the economics behind the implementation of these programs on workers compensation claims. The presentation will also include some exercises that can be implemented as “ergo breaks” into the work day to improve posture and productivity.

    • What is good posture
    • What are common postural deviations
    • How does sitting posture and ergonomics impact MSD’s
    • What exercises can I do in my day to correct my posture
