Think about how much we sit at work, home, in the car, reading, socializing, and time watching TV or working on the computer.  Prolonged sitting can increase muscle tension and stress on the spine, and along with poor posture, can create neck, shoulder, back pain, stiffness, aching, and fatigue.  During this session you will learn how to use full skeletal support to help the body move easily and comfortably.  Presenter:  Eleanor Nowacki, P.T., GCFP, Aurora St. Luke's Pain Management Center.  To register, call the Franklin Health Department at 414-425-9101.
