Ergonomics is the best practice of alignment of your body to reduce pain, stress and fatigue. This also reduces long term effects that sitting or standing incorrectly can have on your body mind and health.

Our trained and certified occupational therapists can assess your work environment, the equipment you use and make suggestions on improving your overall experience.
