Glen Waverley Wellness Day

Last Saturday at Waverley Chiropractic Centre in Glen Waverley we kicked off our 1st event for the year, our Autumn Wellness Day. In conjunction with Healthy Energy, Waverely Chiro Dr Shaun Beovich and a number of other presenters gave lectures and workshops on various wellness topics.

The day was in aid of beyondblue and also supported by First National Waverley City, Lorna Jane Active and others.

Dr Shaun spoke about sitting being the new smoking. Numerous studies show that sitting is detrimental to your health with prolonged sitting increasing the risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Dr Shaun showed some simple techniques to utilise if you do have to sit all day. He also demonstrated some simple cross-over exercises and how important important the brain is for good posture and that we have to actively engage the brain.

Standing, although not for too long, is better than sitting with standing desks being useful.

The best thing though you can do for your spine is to move! Your spine loves movement! So alternate sitting and standing regularly but better yet, get moving! Go for that walk, swim or take the stairs instead.

For good posture habits and brain development as well, also get the kids moving! Kids are spending too much time sitting, using laptops, phone and tablets.

Dr Shaun also conducted a number of free digital posture checks which again highlighted the problem of forward head posture from too much sitting.

Again, thanks for everyone who made the day such a success.A great way to serve the local Waverley community and raise funds for beyondblue.
