Posture and Ergonomics: Stand Up, Sit Up, and Feel Better
19 June, 2019
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Rounded shoulders, slouching, forward head posture – we see these on people all around us at epidemic proportions. It seems everyone is having trouble doing the simplest things, such as standing and sitting up-right, and our desks are only partly to blame. What most do not know, is that this insidious postural problem actually has its roots in our spine and nervous system.
In this talk, Dr Jason Rutkauskas will show why spinal problems such as – neck pain, low back pain, headaches and migraines are on the rise among adults and children. He will discuss how poor daily posture and ergonomics are changing our development, physiology, neurology, and overall health from the inside-out and what to do about it. Dr Rutkauskas will also address the health benefits of chiropractic care for people of all ages.
Sharing the stage is Dr Aymun Kamal, who will share her insights into what to do with common childhood health and postural problems.
