We live in a world where everyone has to perform some activity, whether working in the field or in the city, where the workplace has implications for our health. Well known are the consequences of stress and anxiety caused by work generated mental consequences particularly in modern times, where we work harder to have more money and the things we want, but little is said about the physical consequences of the work .
Every activity we do consistently and repeatedly produce effects on our health, primarily in our musculoskeletal system, which we are passing the account and become chronic conditions. Thus people working in front of a computer often suffer diseases of the tendons as tendinitis or carpal tunnel, and muscle spasms of the neck and shoulders. Those who have spent much of our life studying and suffering the consequences also read a lot of sitting too long, to carry heavy backpacks, to be in front of the computer, where the back, neck and shoulders are more demanding.
Costs will we have to do, but the problem is that it affects our quality of life, our ability to work, even everyday life. This is why many companies have adopted ergonomic interventions: measures of work to accommodate the human body. These measures have been implemented, especially in jobs involving heavy material handling, construction, packaging, office, etc.., Making changes, even in the workplace, to avoid overloading the hands, arms and shoulders.
Although workers have been big improvements in their aching muscles and preventing them, with the ergonomic measures, researchers keep creating studies to show which are the measures that work and how to apply, which has made great results.
It is important that we realize that our body undergoes wear and the constant movements we make, whether for work or as a hobby (when playing video games constantly), and we take appropriate measures to minimize damage, and give us pause times, stretch and do exercises to stretch your muscles regularly.
