Many people with chronic pain spend a lot of time at home. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, even more people are staying inside.
But how do you make sure the way you are positioning your body to do everyday tasks -- like typing on a computer -- isn't causing more pain?
During this webinar, Dr. Linda Kuserk, PT, DPT, will go over some basic ergonomic principles and how to ensure you are engaging in your daily activities in a safe and comfortable way. (While we will focus on how to be best set up at a computer, the same principles will apply to all kinds of tasks, like sitting at a crafting table, reading on the couch at night, writing a letter at the kitchen table, etc.)
She also will review some photos from real patients' homes and offer suggestions, and then answer questions live from the audience. To submit your photos, go to: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5590538/Ergonomics-webinar-participation
We hope you can join us!
