  • The Optimal Health and Elite Athletic Ability Continuums

    The Optimal Health through Death and Elite Athletic Ability through Disability Continuums: Sets forth the bidirectional course of how the human body is in a state of dynamic flux along a biological continuum-'State of the Organism'. This continuum extends from optimal health to death, and each person passes through the continuum stages. From optimal health, humans move to a state that may be termed as a departure from health, then to disease, and on to the expression of a specific disease, complete with signs and symptoms. People with mild departures from physiologic normal should be treated before they experience pathological changes. An early departure from health that is not yet ....

  • Active Rehabilitation for the Structural Side of the Triad of Health

    Active Rehabilitation works to restore deficits on the structural side of the Triad of Health. The three aspects of conservative treatment of locomotor system disorders are advice, manipulation, and exercise. They constitute a continuum of care, which has as its goal the reassurance, reactivation, and return to your prior functional status. Advice begins with dispelling the myth that 'hurt equals harm'. We then promote the gradual resumption of activities as a way to prevent deconditioning and improve the nourishment to the painful tissues. Finally, specific activity modification advice regarding workstation ergonomics, sleep posture/pillows, bending/lifting/carrying, and pushing/pulling ....

Improving safety and efficiency are the goals of ergonomic design and intervention. The ideal goal would be design that eliminates injuries, poor understanding, inefficiencies, and errors without the need for operator training or diligence. Nevertheless, safety is and continues to be a shared responsibility between the employer, insurance broker, ergonomist, health service team, and the worker.
