The Ergonomics of Parenting

Lately, several clients have come in with pain issues that might be avoided with a review of their environmental influences. Usually these influencers are related to the work environment but home and family also play a role in ergonomics. Here's an article I wrote several years ago to address some of these issues.

Ever need to find a new MT for yourself?

      Over the years, many of the MTs I've traded with have moved out of town or retired. Before I knew it, I was down to one and although I've made many professional friendships online, neglected to put in the effort to connect with others locally.

Hi Robin, don't know about the Stetson's in MIchigan, but your boyfriend is the best if he's anything like my Stetson. Husband Dale and his bro Craig are both directly decended from John B, Stetson hat founder. There's a GREAT bunch of relatives, members of the Stetson Clan who meet annually in MA.

Hi Robin,
It's true that my name is on the site, but I have a whole team at ABMP behind me who helped create it. Welcome! I'm so glad you're here.
