Course Details

When we were teenagers and in our 20's, we had energy at its peak. However, as we reach our 30's, 40's, 50's and beyond, we find that we don't feel as vigorous as before. Most of us start getting aches and pains. Pain is normally caused by injury or illness, but they can also be caused by bad eating or sleeping habits, lack of exercise or incorrect posture. In this one-day workshop, we will learn about the mechanisms of joints, muscles and nerves and their relation to the aches and pains we or our loved ones experience. We will also discuss symptoms and types of pain, learn about specific disorders related to the weakening of these parts of the body (Hemiplegia or Parkinson's) and discuss practical care for loved ones with disability, movement and balance disorders. Taking a practical approach through lectures, slide presentations and hands-on tips and exercises (self-care message, foot muscle training and how to choose appropriate footwear and assistive devices), this one-day workshop will help you or your loved ones understand the principles of pain management so that you can improve the quality of your life. Taught by a certified and experienced physiotherapist, respiratory therapist and acupuncturist.
