"The Anatomy of a Sitter"
Presented by Bob Forman, MS
 
 

American adults spend an average of more than eight hours each day in front of screens, including televisions, computer monitors, cell phones and others. Researchers have identified sedentary behavior (time spent sitting) as a novel and potentially important risk factor for development of chronic disease. This 45-minute eye-opening workshop discusses the dangers of sitting, the toxic impact on the body, and the steps we can take to alleviate the devastating impact of this sedentary lifestyle.

Objective 1:  Heighten the awareness regarding the negative health consequences of prolonged sitting.
 
Objective 2:  Heighten awareness regarding the musculoskeletal imbalances and related injury that can develop from prolonged sitting.
 
Objecitve 3:  Discuss the benefit of a physical assessment to identify anatomical deficiencies so that a targeted exercise program can first correct imbalances in the body. In doing so you can improve movement patterns, enhance outcomes, and reduce the potential for injury as exercise progression takes place.
