How to avoid pain with the right seated posture

How to avoid pain with the right seated posture

Pain is often a result of bad posture while sitting, standing or even working on our desks for long periods of time. This week my guest is Scott Hamlin, a physiotherapist from This Is Healthful, an Education Prevention Clinic based in Ottawa. The clinic provides in-person and on-line services focused on improving your health.

You can check out their services at https://www.thisishealthful.com/

Scott will talk to you about:

– culprits that contribute to seated postural pain

– simple low energy strategies to improve seated posture

– simple before / after sleep exercises to reduce postural pain

Scott is a graduate of Anatomical Studies from McGill University and a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy from McMaster University. He is a motivated and experienced physiotherapist with extensive training in orthopedic and out-patient physiotherapy. While he has been actively pursuing the goal of becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapists, Scott’s professional development has ensured he is well rounded and able to provide his patients a variety of treatment approaches including Graston Technique certification, manual therapy, myofascial release, acupuncture and sports rehabilitation. With a focus on active recovery from injury and pain, anchored in evidence-based treatment and a hands-on patient centred focus, Scott’s approach offers shorter recovery times and long-term results. Scott’s professional work experience has included but is not limited to, outpatient orthopedics, industrial / work related rehabilitation, sports medicine and the duties of head trainer for Trent University’s Men’s Rugby club. Scott has also worked as a Can-Fit-Pro certified personal trainer with the motivation that he could share his passion for general health and fitness with everyone. Leaving his McGill Redmen football cleats behind, these days when not at work, you will find Scott spending time at the gym, playing recreational sports and trying to learn a few social dances like Salsa and Swing.

How to breathe mindfully & observe your emotions without dictating your thoughts & behaviours

How to breathe mindfully & observe your emotions without dictating your thoughts & behaviours

Becoming more aware of emotions, and allowing ourselves to feel them without becoming overwhelmed by them will allow us to learn to acknowledge our emotions versus avoid them, and observe them without fighting them. – Emotions are connected to our thoughts and behaviours, emotions are a communication tool to others, emotions let us know when things are going well or distressing, and more. – We often try and avoid negative emotions, or use certain emotions as a defense mechanism to mask or deflect from feeling other more vulnerable emotions. Heather is a registered occupational therapist, and the Coordinator of Occupational Therapy Services and Mental Hygiene at This Is Healthful. She has her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, an Honours Bachelor of Health Sciences, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Gerontology. Healther believes that we’re living our healthiest life when we’re doing things that are important to us, that are purposeful, and bring meaning to each day. As an occupational therapist, she is passionate about empowering others to find their version of healthy through engaging in occupations (tasks and activities of everyday life), building personal supports, and maximizing overall wellness. Heather believes it’s important to support people to find and maintain physical health, mental health, cognitive functioning, and overall wellness. She has had particular experience working with individuals struggling with mental health concerns, like depression and anxiety; those living with chronic conditions, like chronic pain and arthritis; and people that have experienced a change in cognitive functioning, for example due to concussion or dementia. She believes that helping people solve problems that interfere with the things that are important is the key to optimal quality of life and overall wellness.
