4520 ***Class is CLOSED. New reg. added to WAITLIST***Taking Care of Your Neck & Back
Jennifer Lee, PT, DPT
Taking Care of Your Neck and Back is for any person who has ever had neck or back pain. It is also appropriate for anyone who sits in front of a computer for long hours or who is dealing with any repetitive stress. The session includes a discussion of anatomy, proper postures and body mechanics, ergonomics, do’s & don’ts, heat and cold therapy and basic exercises. Not only will you learn the basics of taking care of your own spine, but you will also leave the class with new information and exercises that you can put into practice immediately.
My therapist's expertise in identifying where stress and tension was held proved extremely helpful. I have taken nutrition, attended the Mind Body Institute classes, and meditation along with massage - all with tremendous benefit.
