October 16th is World Spine DayEvery year on October 16th people from around the world join together to raise awareness on World Spine Day as part of the Bone and Joint Action Week. The World Spine Day theme for 2016 is "Straighten up and Move". We want to highlight the importance of physical activities and improving your posture as part of spinal health and prevention of injury.
With back pain the largest single global cause of disability, World Spine Day will be raising awareness of occupational factors and how we can reduce the impact they have on our backs and necks. Heavy lifting, repetitive movement and sitting for long periods can all become painful over time; in fact back pain is one of the major causes of time off work, with workers sometimes out of action for weeks or months.
Your health is important to us! Come in to get your spine checked. We are offering FREE one time use, spinal checks.
