We are excitedly gearing up for the presentation at National Council on Aging National Conference in Chicago next week.
If you are a health professional, personal trainer, or physical therapist you can earn 1 CEU on a very important yet often ignored subject- the importance of posture.
If you plan on being at the conference, we would love to see you at this free, informative workshop.
Misconceptions About Aging: Is It Aging, Immobility or Posture?
Tue, 3/16: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Tuesday Afternoon 1
Hyatt Regency Chicago
Room: Dusable (West Tower, Silver level, 3rd floor)
CEU Credits: 1
There is a common misconception that loss of balance, stiffness, slowed reactions, and hip or knee replacements are normal in the aging process. More often they come from practiced postural imbalances, injury compensations, repetitive motion/overuse injuries, and trauma, and they are coming earlier in life and in epidemic proportions. This workshop will explore how we can implement better behavioral practices.
- Define the three major differences between normal aging, immobility of joints, and poor postural habits.
- Understand and name the current health epidemics in the USA.
- Four issues of living and growing old in the USA vs. other countries/cultures.
Hope to see you there,
