National Talkblack 131021

We had:

Osteopath Dr. Lorrae Griffiths, talking about key awareness initiative aimed at highlighting to pregnant Indigenous women they do not have to put up with pain. Two highly experienced osteopaths working with Osteopathy Australia are highlighting a massive 50% of women who are pregnant will experience pregnancy-related lower back pain, and they point out that just 1 in 5 (20%) actually seek out care for the issue.

Senior Sergeant Glen De Lai and PLO Stephen Grant from Edmonton Police, talking about quad bike safety. A quad bike is an off-road motorised vehicle that travels on four wheels, with a seat designed to be straddled by the operator and handlebars for steering control. Quad bikes are often marketed as stable vehicles that are safe to use on all terrains. However, research shows that the danger in quad bikes is their tendency to tip or roll over when moving at speed, travelling up hills or on uneven ground. The rider can become crushed or pinned under the bike, causing death or injury. Suppliers must now comply with a safety standard when they sell you a new quad bike. The standard does not apply to second-hand quad bikes other than those imported into Australia.
