• Lifting, Pushing, or Pulling
• Exposure To Heat or Cold
• Awkward or Sustained Postures
• Performing the Same Motions Repeatedly
• Reaching Overhead Consistently

Over time ergonomic injuries can affect the muscles, nerves, ligaments, joints, tendons and spinal discs which naturally causes:

• Muscle Strains
• Lower Back Injuries
• Tendinitis
• Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries

Ergonomic injury  warning signs:

• Swelling, Inflammation, or Stiffness in Joints
