Spinal Health Week 2016

Next week is Spinal Health Week and it will focus on how you can perform and live better by backing your inner athlete through good spinal function, reducing pain, improving posture and taking care of one’s health.

You don't need to be a sporting professional to achieve peak performance. You can perform and live better through reducing pain, maintaining good spinal function and living a healthy lifestyle.

Wellington Family Chiropractic encourages you to “Back Your Inner Athlete” by making sure you have the three P's of chiropractic care tended to:

o    REDUCE PAIN by helping de-stress your spine

o    IMPROVE POSTURE by educating you on correct posture

o    ACTIVATE PERFORMANCE by placing importance on good spinal health and function, and living a healthy lifestyle, to assist with improving performance in life.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 'globally, around 31% of adults aged 15 and over are insufficiently active (men 28% and women 34%). Approximately 3.2 million deaths each year are attributable to insufficient physical activity'.

Our sedentary lifestyles are catching up with us and it's time to make a change. Try to do 30 minutes a day of moderately intensive activity (walking, jogging, swimming, cycling).
