Coding your body

The average movement habits of a clichè hacker are legendary. Cowering for days in front of unergonomic hardware setups, stoic ignorance of hardly decodeable signs of the body like hunger, eye- and backpains. Probably due to a general disinterest in non-digitally engineered systems. Shouldn’t a true hacker know at least bits and pieces about the codes and signs of the body? We all know bits and pieces.. but are they the correct and helpful ones? We will discuss some technical and biological details of slipped discs, posture disservice and pain. I will show fundamental “red flags” which have to be serviced by a medical geek. But not all medical geeks have a good idea about the body's code, therefore I will also suggest some helpful therapies for the most common cases. Bottom line: how to code your body to prevent pain without relying on smattering. I am a trained physical therapist and have treated many patients with different back problems, which were mostly caused by the same habits: ignorance of warning signs, bad hardware setup and cluelessness about how the body functions. My talk will include basic models of the important body structures and how basic maintanance should look like. I will focus on the vertebral setup with bone and connective tissues. How are they build and what their function is. I will also present some worst case scenarios of consequences when slipped discs cut of nerves and numbness in arms or legs are mild problems you might encounter. Small changes in posture and daily habits will be presented, because you have to know why and how you should do it. http://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5289.html Day: 2013-12-30 Start time: 12:15 Duration: 00:30 Room: Saal 6 Track: Science & Engineering Language: en
