Postural Analysis Certification

So, I'm seriously thinking of taking this course and getting certified in postural analysis. Given that I don't really work, it would be a waste of money, financially. But, I'd like to have the knowledge and it would count for CEUs. What do you think? I'm thinking I could offer it to the girls at the dance studio, as a fund raiser.

Given my physicial therapy, along with shoulder issues, and the growing need for this education given that the women/girls wear such high heels, I say, "go for it."

My physical therapist informed me that much of my pinched nerve has to do with my posture, the way I carry myself, and my physical behavior (e.g., computer mouse use, repeptitive exercise, etc.)

I agree with you that financially... it's kind of pointless. But from an education standpoint, I think it's gold.

Yeah, that is a little pricey.

That's where I'm leaning--that it would be great to have the knowledge.

I don't even have to read the description to say yes, take this! Lol. I am totally a posture freak, too, and people don't realize how their poor posture effects them. Yes, take it, then share all the info here! (btw, "hi"!) :)

What kind of pinched nerve do you have? Isn't it awful that it's always something that hurts, pinches, or inflames??

Yes, but the overwhelming consensus from the physicians is to remove a small rib to make room for this pinched nerve.

Oh, I'm sorry! Hopefully you can relax it enough to get back to old routines or at least lose enough. Is it your shoulder? Have you tried a chiropractor! I'm sure you're dong everything you can; you always seem so knowledgeable! Yes, getting old just stinks. However much you don't want it to effect "things" , it has a way of creeping up and in all on it's own.

Hey Cathy! Glad you had some spare time to join us!. How's the summer going?

I hesitated on this because I hadn't heard of this group.
