Musculoskeletal conditions are prevalent, affecting 30% (6.9 million) of all Australians (including 3.7 million people with back problems). While in some cases this cannot be avoided (such as an accident or injury), everyday habits can be a big determining factor in how well your spine can handle stress. Spinal Health Week 2018 (21-27 May) is a great opportunity to focus attention on everyday habits which may harm the health of your spine.
At Spine Sport Feet, we encourage all our patients to take charge of their health and make the necessary changes to improve their quality of life.
Simple lifestyle adjustments like being mindful of your posture, taking breaks from mobile devices, being active and incorporating stretching into your daily routine can make a noticeable difference.
If you or anyone you know is experiencing spinal health issues such as back pain, neck pain or headaches, it is advisable to seek professional advice. During Spinal Health Week, make an appointment at Spine Sport Feet to find out how Chiro Can Help with improving your spinal health.
