This course will educate clinicians on most current research and trends in office ergonomics and how it may impact their patient’s care. Often clients are referred for overuse injuries or musculoskeletal disorders of unknown origin. Although we can’t always be certain that their job is the cause it may certainly be impacting their symptoms. The clinician will learn ways they can tackle office ergonomics with their client without actually visiting their office. This class will focus on upper extremity overuse injuries.
