Spinal Health Week May 20 – 26th.
As we all know life is full of unknowns, but you can take simple and practical steps now to be ready for life at any age. As part of Spinal Health Week 2019 (20-26 May), the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) is encouraging Australians to take control of their health, regardless of age.
Australians aged 65 and over make up 15% of the population and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that this will increase to 22% by 2065, putting additional strain on the government to provide care for older Australians. 3.7 million Australians reported back pain in 2015 alone. Back pain can have a damaging effect on a person’s quality of life by affecting their ability to participate at work, in social activities and sports.
Chiro Can Help You Get Ready For Life
For Spinal Health Week 2019, chiropractors across the country are encouraging Australians to get ‘Ready For Life’ by ensuring their posture is correct, they are living active lifestyles and seeking chiropractic care where necessary. “One way to help you be Ready For Life and improve your spinal health is to get a check-up from our chiropractors, Ian Curnow or Ashlee Batters here at Tweed Coast Chiropractic. Chiropractors can also be seen as a preventative healthcare option by offering advice and assistance in making appropriate lifestyle choices and therefore reducing the risk of spinal health issues arising in the first place,”
Chiropractic care is not a one size fits all healthcare option. Chiropractors carefully assess each patient individually and tailor their care accordingly. By using a variety of non-surgical techniques, such as specific spinal adjustments, manual therapy and low-force intervention, chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to spinal healthcare. “It is important to take preventative measures when it comes to spinal health and if you are experiencing pain, it is not advisable to ignore this. Get advice from your local chiropractor at Tweed Coast Chiropractic as early as possible.
