World Spine Day 2020
World Spine Day is coming up on 16 October and it’s a great time to remind everyone about the importance of spinal health on your overall wellbeing. Lower back pain can be very debilitating, impacting your physical and emotional wellbeing. It’s also common, with research showing that 63.6% of people will experience lower back pain in their lifetime. Shockingly, only one in five seek professional support to ease the pain.
This year, with the impacts of COVID-19 on our lifestyle and activity, we feel World Spine Day provides a timely reminder about the importance of reactivating, revitalising and refocussing on your health and wellbeing. As the mental and physical benefits of good health through exercise, sleeping well, maintaining a balanced diet, stretching and chiropractic care are immeasurable.
World Spine Day is an initiative of the World Federation of Chiropractic and each year it has a theme. For 2020 it’s all about getting ‘Back on Track’, inspired by the challenges of the global pandemic which included self-isolating and working from home.
At Chiropractic for Health, we’d like to encourage everyone to get back on track with their health and wellness and there’s no better time to start, other than right now. Best of all, it’s easy to do and can start with a brisk walk along the Esplanade, one of our many green tracks or even just around the block.
Regular exercise, stretching, diet and ensuring you have enough sleep, will not only help your spinal health, it will have you feeling revitalised for summer. For tips on the best way to stretch, check out the Australian Chiropractor’s Association Straighten Up app.
Self-care is really important and making the time to consciously observe your body and any aches and pains you may be experiencing, will also help to understand if you need support from a healthcare professional like a chiropractor.
At Chiropractic for Health we’re trained to provide tailored lifestyle care and advice, to help you maintain both your spinal health and overall health and wellbeing and we look forward to helping you get ‘back on track’.
