Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy Offers Virtual Ergonomics Program for Increased Back, Neck, and Arm Issues Due to Working From Home During Coronavirus
With many individuals working from home due to COVID-19, upper extremity pain is on the rise; Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy’s Ergonomics Program offers a solution .
Tulsa based Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy has developed an Ergonomic Program designed to address upper extremity pain.
The program, available now, was borne out of a need for pain management due to working from home, brought about by COVID-19 precautions. The program helps individuals manage pain by providing workstation assessments and offering expert recommendations.
And in true COVID-19 fashion, all of this can be done virtually.
The advent of a global pandemic has brought with it many challenges, including working from home. At home workstation layouts resulted in physical pain for many.
Back, neck, and arm issues are all on the rise. With the creation of the Ergonomic Program, patients are reporting “less neck pain and tension, fewer headaches, as well as decreased pain, numbness, and tingling in the upper extremities,” reports Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy spokesperson and owner Rhonda Millet.
COVID-19 provides challenges for patients as well as providers at Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy.
The staff at the facility place safety as their number one priority. They continue to provide one on one care while following Center for Disease Control precautions.
“We are confident that we can continue to keep everyone safe while still providing excellent care. We also offer telehealth as an option when appropriate for the patient,” adds Millet.
Each patient receives a thorough assessment so that Oklahoma Hand and Physical Therapy can offer individualized care with the patient’s goals in mind. “You have choices in your care. Whether your need is help with a chronic issue, an acute injury, or prevention– we have solutions,” encourages Millet.
Physical therapy is an effective and cost saving approach to many common concerns. Research shows that physical therapy, especially when it comes to back pain, is a better option than surgery and medications.
Patients should not settle for surgery or medications without first trying physical therapy.
