using Urban Poles & Postural Restoration!

This webinar will introduce the evidence based benefits of Nordic walking which include improved posture, core activation, and joint pain reduction.   Jon Schultz, MPT, OCS, PRC describes how using the Urban Poling technique can promote the 3-dimensional movement that should normally occur through our pelvis and rib cage and  pump our lymphatic & cardiovascular  system when we walk. It is ultimately our breathing coupled with the alternating rotation of our bodies while walking that drives this mechanism and generates kinetic exercise.  

Exercises that can be used for telehealth with a PRI emphasis will be demonstrated and reviewed.

Like many physical therapists, my first introduction to the career came after I sustained an injury. I was serving in the army at the time and broke my leg. I was very fortunate at that time to receive outstanding physical therapy and recovered completely. Actually, due to the expertise of my physical therapist, I was faster competing in triathlons than before this serious injury. This experience provided the inspiration to combine two of my passions – giving back to the community and sports – into a career
