Desk Exercises

Many ergonomic injuries can be prevented by simply stretching properly and warming up before beginning to work. These exercises can also be performed any time you have an interruption in your work cycle, planned or unplanned. 

While the exercises we recommend are all low impact and require no special skills or equipment, you should consult your doctor before trying them if you have any type of ergonomic injury.

Desk exercises are offered for:

  • Thumbs
  • Fingers and Forearms
  • Wrists 
  • Shoulders
  • Neck
  • Trunk and Back
  • Eyes
