Description

Nine out of ten sonographers scan in pain. Pain shouldn't be "part of the job." This presentation will demonstrate to sonographers the correct exercise/stretching techniques to eliminate pain. Optimized movement patterns, as related to the body and the type of work, ultimately decrease injury and give you the ability to work and live pain free. Learn how to implement a corrective program into your routine with simple stretches and exercises that can be done anywhere.

  • Learn proper corrective exercises to increase career longevity
    • Corrective exercises for problem areas, including: shoulders/neck, arms/wrist, lower back, hips and legs
