Description

How long do you spend sitting?

How long do you spend sitting at your desk during the day? Now add on the time you spend relaxing in front of the TV on the sofa in the evenings and perhaps the commute in the car or train on the way to and from work…More than 5 hours?

You’re probably sitting for much longer than you realise and have been doing so for many years.

At N8 Health, we regularly see patients in our practice suffering with lower back pain and one of the main causes is prolonged sitting. Principal Chiropractor, Dr Paul McCrossin has over 23 years experience in practice and lower back pain, neck pain and headaches are the some of the most common issues he sees associated with occupations which involve prolonged sitting. 

Our bodies weren’t designed to sit for multiple hours a day and be immobile. We also know it is not easy to avoid being immobile if you work in an office.

Wouldn’t you love to put an end to those aches and pains and feel safe in the knowledge that you can be at your desk at work and still be healthy? Carefully crafted from our own research, the exercises we give to our practice members and our experience in practice, “Sit Healthy” is your one stop solution to guilt-free, healthy sitting.

Who is the target audience?
  • People who sit at a desk for long periods of time and are suffering from aches and pains
  • Busy professionals who know that prolonged sitting is unhealthy and would like to know how they can be healthier whilst working in a desk job
  • Someone who is suffering from back, neck or shoulder pain and would like to know more about how to prevent this
  • People who are time poor and are looking for some quick and easy ways to improve their health without having to see a professional

Chiropractic Practice Director

As Clinic Director at N8 Health, Charlotte oversees the smooth running of the practice that she jointly runs with her husband Paul McCrossin who is the principal Chiropractor. Paul McCrossin has 23 years clinical experience as a Chiropractor and established N8 Health in 2000. 

Charlotte worked in the financial services for 16 years before joining forces with husband Paul in 2016. 

Charlotte has been passionate about Chiropractic since she met Paul in 2011 and started getting regularly adjusted. She is living proof that Chiropractic changes lives! She has attended many Chiropractic conferences and is well versed in the many benefits of living a Chiropractic lifestyle. 

Charlotte started to get frustrated when working in a desk job in the financial world that many Chiropractors did not recommend people should sit at desks for long periods of time but felt that she was faced with no choice with the job she was doing. She also noticed that many people she worked with were suffering from aches and pains and did not know that there was an alternative to taking pain killers or just suffering in silence. 

It was through this frustration that Charlotte decided to combine forces using her husband's knowledge as a practitioner, her love of nutrition and experience of working at a desk all day to put together this course to help the many working professionals who are being held back from living their best life by aches and pains and think this is normal.
