Ergonomics in the Trenches A Practical Ergonomics Seminar for OT’s and PT’s February 2 and 3, 2007 Many therapists are reluctant to develop an ergonomics component to their practice because they don’t feel they have the skills or knowledge base to examine, evaluate and provide interventions for their patients/clients. This course is designed to fill that gap. You will learn the evidence behind work-related musculoskeletal disorders, how to perform appropriate tests and measures in both office and non-office settings, and practical resources available to assist you.:  Ergonomics in the Trenches A Practical Ergonomics Seminar for OT’s and PT’s February 2 and 3, 2007 Many therapists are reluctant to develop an ergonomics component to their practice because they don’t feel they have the skills or knowledge base to examine, evaluate and provide interventions for their patients/clients.
