24 hour Postural Care Talk by Sarah Hill
9 December 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm HKTFree
Postural Care provides comfortable, symmetrical support for individuals who are unable to move well. In the effort to protect body shape and muscle tone this care is provided continuously by the first circle of support around an individual; it supplements active movement and is needed day and night. Postural Care protects muscle tone and the skeleton as well as internal capacity of the abdomen and thorax; it thereby protects all the soft structures and internal organs. Postural Care applies to lying, semi reclined and sitting.
Sarah has just completed a Train the Trainer course for Postural Care and the Protection of Body Shape; she is keen to raise awareness for 24-hour postural care for people who find it hard to move and who are at risk of developing body shape distortions.
The talk is relevant to anyone whose children have postural or mobility issues and not just those with obvious or higher physical needs.
