The Hazards of Sitting: An Osteopath’s Approach to Preventing Work-Related Injury.

Presented by: Michele Parsley-Lanning D.O.

My training as an Osteopathic Physician prepared me to counsel my patients about injury and disease prevention. However, I did not realize the full impact of spending a majority of my time sitting at a desk would have on my overall movement and flexibility.

In this talk, I will provide background education on the most common injuries software engineers are at risk to develop and how I try to prevent these by implementing a few simple measures daily at work.

Some of the measures include proper chair/desk/monitor adjustment, workspace setup, stretching routine that can be easily implemented at your desk and much more.
