October 16th is World Spine Day #GetSpineActive
“There is overwhelming evidence that keeping people active is one of the best ways to manage back pain. We want to highlight the fact that wherever people are in the world, they can participate in activities that will keep them moving and prevent chronicity,” says World Spine Day Global Coordinator Dr Robyn Brown.
According to the World Health Organization, one in four adults, and 80% of adolescents are not active enough.
While #GetSpineActive is great for back pain, the evidence supports activity for cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. #GetSpineActive doesn’t just mean going to the gym and working out. Everyone can #GetSpineActive by committing to movement, at home, during work and even taking the stairs instead of the escalator. .
The team at TBC is supporting World Spine Day by discussing spine health in local schools and of course having some fun!
World Spine Day is organised by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) on behalf of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health – and you may remember that our very own Corrian is a Director at WFC.
