Have you ever wonder how is your spinal health?
Every year, we celebrate Spinal Health Week to raise awareness of the causes and negative effects of back pain, at the same time, promoting ways to take control of your back pain.
Back pain is one of the most burdensome physical conditions faced by Australians. The Institution of Health & Welfare estimates around 4 million Australians, which is 16% of the population, have back problems!
With pain being the main symptom of most back problems, it is also estimated that 70 - 90% of people will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives.
This can also take a toll on your mental health, impacting your social relationships, ability to work and quality of life.
With the average Australian sitting for more than half their day, this certainly doesn’t help! Your back pain can be triggered by sedentary behaviour caused by inactivity.
We like to think that living with back pain does not have to be part of your everyday life. We suggests that whether people are experiencing pain from bad habits like inactivity or suffering from an exercise injury, they have options like chiropractic care to help them get back to their best self.
For those who wish to keep a healthy back, we also suggest utilising chiropractic as a preventative healthcare option, as we offer exercise programs, lifestyle advice and assistance to help incorporate positive habits into your everyday routine 😊
So, how well do you know your spine health?
