Q. I have pain at work. Is there anything that can be done to help me work with less pain?

A. To understand the type and nature of your job, your physical or occupational therapist may want to ask you a variety of questions. The information you give can help your therapist design exercises to help you control pain at work. If needed, your therapist may want to go to your worksite and observe how your work tasks are done. This can give him or her important information about risks, and whether any changes need to be made. Even small changes in the way your workstation is designed or how you do your job can make a big difference in your comfort and safety at work. Assessing where and how a person does work is called ergonomics (air-go-nom-icks).
