Good Posture Good Balance & Good Health - Aug 19 (Sat)

Posture is about far more than looking confident and poised. Sitting or standing in the right position makes sure our bodies function properly. Here we look at posture and how to improve yours starting today.

Is It Really That Bad?

Just what’s so terrible about having poor posture, besides not looking as sharp as you could? Quite a bit as it turns out. When you slouch or slump, so does your spine, leading to bad circulation. This can cause vertebrae to deteriorate over time. Chronic fatigue can also result. Coupled with circulation issues, the result can be early exhaustion. Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain can also result from the strain of bad positioning. Fifty percent of working Americans suffer from back pain, and it’s the second most common reason for doctor visits. Twenty five percent of those with back pain suffer from a herniated disc, which may be caused by poor posture.

Speaker: Dr Florina Iliescu

Dr. Florina Silvia Iliescu graduated from Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Bucharest - Romania with a Bachelor Degree in General Medicine (Hons) and MSc. Her first research project highlighted the human factor in the management of patients with myocardial infarction (“The Importance of the Emergency Preadmission Treatment in Acute Myocardial Infarction“). She continued her medical education and has been awarded her PhD for the work that related the modern nanotechnologies to new and performing devices for diagnosis and drug administration ("Contribution to the development of tissue therapy: Diagnostic and treatment procedures using microneedles in the pathology of the teguments). Her experience in medical field covers both pre-clinical (Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology Laboratory, Diagnostic Imaging) and clinical work (General Surgery, General Medicine). Throughout her medical journey she discovered the importance of the laboratory and research work in the medical life, and made her decision to impart her knowledge with learners of all ages. She conducted various workshops on medical- and education-related subjects to help the community become aware of general wellbeing and long-life learning. The time spent both in the laboratory and in class helped Florina combine medical experience with research activity in both medical and pedagogical fields. She received several awards for her work as well as her students’ work. She also has lead and concluded one MOE grant which applied the basic principles of podiatry to the design of one education program in the field and to one screening device for early detection of body imbalance. The experience was the driving factor of her interest in her work and personal development. She wishes to contribute to people education and development and be part of the fascinating world of “teach and be taught for body and mind”.
