IN THE SPOTLIGHT
TAKE A TOOL AND RUN
Take a Tool and Run with Dr. Heather Corwin
TTR 10: Exercise balls have been suggested by a wide range of health care professionals to help a person engage the core when sitting for long periods of time. The playful action of an exercise ball can help a person become more aware in the moment through the need to balance that is not necessary for a chair. In rehabilitation scenarios, the use of an exercise ball helps reduce the likelihood of loading up the low back, which helps avoid re-injury (Drake, Fischer, Brown, & Callaghan, 2006). For our purposes, finding ways to foster awareness is the tool to take and enjoy. This is Dr. Heather Corwin’s November edition of “Take a Tool and RUN!” More can be found at www.BodybyHeather.com.
