Proper Workplace Ergonomics
Whether you are working from a desk at home, standing on your feet all day in retail, or driving a truck to deliver packages, workplace ergonomics are extremely important. Not having the proper work setup, leads to chronic stress, which can lead to a workplace injury. The chiropractic professionals at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic in Tacoma, WA have the knowledge and experience to help you recover from and prevent future workplace injuries.
Chronic and Repetitive Stress
Any type of repetitive movement can cause chronic stress. If you lift things all day, your spine can become imbalanced. Workers who sit at a desk all day often develop postural issues that contribute to chronic pain.

Pain in your arm, shoulder, or back can lead to limited movement, preventing you from performing your job to the best of your ability. Any lifting, even if you think you are performing proper lifting, can contribute to back pain. If you are suffering from any type of pain due to poor work ergonomics, repetitive movements, improper lifting, our chiropractor is ready to assist you.
