New York Back Pain and Ergonomics 

 May 31, 2011

By  Dr. John Vilkelis

Lower back pain in New York can be the result of repetitive actions that may put unnecessary pressure on different parts of your back. Any action you perform in your New York, workplace, even things as simple as standing, sitting, lifting, and walking apply pressure to different parts of your back.

When inappropriate amounts of pressure and force are applied to inappropriate areas of the back, lower back pain is a possibility.

In New York, ‘Ergonomics’ is a term that is sometimes associated with the alleviation of lower back pain and the study of human movement as related to the environment and use of tools.

Those who study ergonomics in New York may look at how the tools of a computer desk and chair physically and mentally affect a New York, employee possibly determining that certain tools, such as a specific type of chair, inappropriately apply pressure to areas of the back in New York and could cause you back pain. A chair may then be designed which, when correctly used, redistributes the pressure so that back pain is minimized for New York workers.

Practicing different postures, engaging in periods of movement, lifting with your legs, and correctly using ergonomically designed tools are all adjustments that may lessen lower back pain for people in New York City.
