• It is important to consider skeletal muscles when arranging the layout of your office workstation.
• Most skeletal muscles are connected to bones by tendons.
• These muscles allow us to move the body joints when they are contracted.
• For instance, flexing of elbow joints is due to the contraction of bicep muscle.
Ligaments and Tendons
• Ligaments are tissues connecting bone to bone, while Tendons are connecting muscle to bone.
• There are many ligaments and tendons in our hands and wrists.
• The muscles and tendons are utilized for movement of our hands and fingers.
• These tendons run through the “Carpal Tunnel” at our wrist, including with blood vessels and nerves.
• If the tendons in this tunnel are irritated, it may cause pain and numbness in the hand and fingers.
• People involved in computer based office tasks are prone having injuries in hands and finger.
• Spine is made up of vertebrae (bones) that are stacked on top of each other.
• Vertebrae are separated by discs that act as shock absorbers to decrease any
• Stress experienced by the spine.
• Spine has three segments: Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar.
• These segments create natural curves of your back.
• The ideal posture for the spine is when all three curves are present.
