Can School Help Stop our Children Becoming Sedentary and Should We Feel Sorry For Dentists?

June 20, 2017 - Mike Dilke

This Relaxback UK show looks at how sedentary our children have become. I look at the Steiner School my children attend and see how it encourages them to be very active. I also ask if we should feel at all sorry for dentists. What do you think?

Hear the RELAXBACK UK show here.

Steiner schools use movement to help teach in lots of ways. They use movement to help with learning the times tables and also teach 10 year olds circus skills. I have been a bit jealous of my daughter learning to juggle and learning to ride a uni-cycle. Hear about these teaching methods that teach and also keep children active here.

Also dentists can inflict pain on us but have you spared a thought for the poor old dentist? They have to get into some awkward positions to their work and can end up with some quite serious musculoskeletal pains. I speak with Brian Halvorsen who is the Integrated Dentist on UK Health Radio and you can hear the discussion here.
