Background: Emping chips labors work in bent body posture may cause neck pain. Designing ergonomically workplace require compatible table and chair height. The objective of this research to understand the effect of table and chair height adjustment with elbow sitting height and popliteal against changing scale of neck pain. Research Methodology: The research used experimental design with one group pre-post method. Neck pain scale was measured with Visual Analog Scale. Purposely intervention was adjustment in table and chair height with elbow sitting height and popliteal within 14 (fourteen) days observation. Subsequently, paired T-test was performed to measure mean difference between pre and post intervention against neck pain scale. Uncontrolled variable was examined with bi variate testing toward changing scale of neck pain that continued with multivariate testing. Result: Subject of the study was 31 employees, and the prevalence neck pain before intervention was 82%. Statistically proven that there was significant difference of mean scale of neck pain between pre and post intervention in adjustment of table and chair height during 14 (fourteen) days observation with p-value = 0.000 and 95% CI= 3.35 - 4.13. Conclusion: There was significant effect of table and chair height adjustment with elbow sitting height and popliteal against reduction of neck pain scale during 14 (fourteen) days observation.

Dr. Vazquez Morgan earned a Bachelors of Science in Physical Therapy in 1993, a Masters in Health Sciences in 1997 from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, and her doctorate in Health Studies from Texas Woman’s University in Denton, Texas in 2006. She has 19 years of clinical rehabilitation experience and has been a faculty member at Louisiana State University Health in Shreveport, School of Allied Health Professions since 1997. She has presented research both nationally, internationally, and regionally at continuing educations seminars on occupation health, neurorehabilitation and culture. She was featured several times in 2005 and 2008 in National Newsline Magazine for PT speaking on the role of cultural diversity in the physical therapy profession, and was honored in November 2006 by Maybelline NY as outstanding female educator of the year, and featured in People en Espanol December 2006 issue. Dr. Morgan was also a recipient of the American Physical Therapy Association Minority Faculty Development National Scholarship in 2003.
Purpose: Patients who suffer on the job injuries rely on State administered workers’ compensation systems for appropriate medical treatment and rehabilitation. Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) have been readily utilized by physical therapists and other health care providers to evaluate a patient's capacity to return to work along with establishing specific limitations with common functional tasks required in the workplace. The purpose of this study was to evaluate heart rate (HR) responses between patients in two performance level classifications (safe-maximal and sub-maximal) and to attempt to establish a minimum threshold for HR changes that should be expected during specific functional testing protocols within FCEs. Methods: Participants included 500 males and females ranging in age from 28 to 85 whom were injured on the job. Methods: Variables measured included resting HR, pre-HR and peak-HR during dynamic lift testing, percent of HR change, resting blood pressure. Participants were classified as providing either safe-maximal or sub-maximal performance during the functional testing based on established objective critieria. All 500 individuals participated in three dynamic lift tests, floor to knuckle, knuckle to shoulder, and shoulder to overhead. Analyses: A one tailed t-test was used to assess HR change between groups. Results: Statistically significant differences (p = .0000000306) were found in percent change in HR between the safe-maximal and sub-maximal performance groups for all three dynamic lift tests. Discussion/Conclusion: Statistically significant differences were found in percent change in HR, between the safe-maximal and sub-maximal performance groups. This study may provide an objective physiological guideline for healthcare professionals to use during sub-maximal performance groups. This study may provide an objective physiological guideline for healthcare professionals to use during FCE assessments.
