World Spine Day 2020
Consider a Chiro to Help get you Back on Track
On 16 October, we at Eir Family Chiropractic & Wellness will celebrate World Spine Day 2020. World Spine day is an annual health initiative by the World Federation of Chiropractic, aiming to encourage good spinal health habits.
Each World Spine Day presents its own unique theme, and this year the theme could not be timelier. The 2020 theme, ‘Back on Track’, was inspired by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact this has had on our spinal health and wellbeing.
Despite restrictions having protected communities around the world, they have inevitably impacted people’s ability to stay active and mobile. Back on Track celebrates and encourages communities to reactivate and revitalise their bodies by getting out and focusing on effective spine care.
In the recent consumer survey conducted by the Australian Chiropractors Association, a third of Australians (32.6%) admitted that their pain made them less mobile and even impacted their ability to perform everyday tasks.
Back on Track highlights the importance of exercise, posture, movement and good self-care to ensure a healthy spine. The activities can be as simple as ensuring you exercise daily, maintain a balanced diet, get enough sleep and practice the Straighten Up stretching program, which are all great ways to help you regain control over your health.
Our chiropractor Dr Miriam Kendall and the team at Eir Family Chiropractic & Wellness are trained to provide tailored lifestyle care and advice to help you maintain both your spinal health, and overall health and wellbeing. Following months of a changed routine and adjusting to a new normal, #ConsiderAChiro to help get you #BackOnTrack to being your best self.
