SPINAL HEALTH WEEK – Get Your Happy Back

This Spinal Health Week’s theme is ‘Get Your Happy Back’.

Every day more and more Australians experience disabling low back pain, neck pain and headaches, limiting their ability to work and engage in an active healthy life.

One explanation for this is the impact an increasingly sedentary lifestyle has on postural fitness. Think about the hours you spend each day sitting at work or school, at a computer or other mobile device, watching television or playing computer games. Poor posture increases pressure on your spine which can cause low back pain, neck pain, headaches and fatigue.

Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between body structure (primarily the spine and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how this relationship can restore and maintain health.

At Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic, we are encouraging our patients and the local community to begin a conversation about preventative health and well being and adopt healthy habits.

Follow the Blog www.geturhappyback.  This blog will contain the latest news and research along with other great articles promoting the importance of chiropractic and getting your #happyback.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY, SAFE & BLESSED CHRISTMAS AND A HEALTHY NEW YEAR! 

CHRISTMAS – It’s such a beautiful time of year, but it’s also one of the busiest. Rushing from school concerts to end of year parties, to catching up with friends and family. It’s no wonder that we see so many stress-related conditions over this period. So many of us tend to burn the candle at both ends, not eat well or over-eat and over-indulge in other ways, and our bodies tend to run on adrenaline. Once Christmas is over, most people think that they can relax….

Then adrenaline levels plummet and the body suddenly has to cope without it. This is when symptoms become more pronounced, or, in other words, we fall into a screaming heap!

Stress lowers your resistance to disease and increases your susceptibility to injury.

While this time of year can be so stressful, it is also a wonderful time of celebration with family, friends and colleagues, and it is a time to be grateful for all the blessings received over the year. At this time we would like to thank you all for entrusting us with your care and with the care of your family and friends.

The greatest compliment our patients can give is the referral of their friends and loved ones. We thank you for your trust. image Read more


World Spine Day 16th October

World Spine Day

Each year World Spine Day is observed on October 16th to encourage spinal health by disseminating information on good spinal health habits.

Our hectic and stressful lifestyles can often have significant negative affects on our spine and nervous system. Spinal disorders such as back pain, neck pain, scoliosis and degenerative disc disease, to name a few, are common, and can have a profound effect on a person’s overall health, impacting a person’s ability to work, enjoy everyday activities and even disrupting healthy sleep patterns.

Research has demonstrated that poor posture and inactivity can contribute to the development of back pain and other spinal disorders.  the good news is that many of these common problems can be easily avoided.

This year’s theme for World Spine Day is Straighten Up and Move, focusing on the importance of proper posture and movement in maintaining good spinal health.

The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia and chiropractors around Australia are reminding their local communities about the important role that keeping active can play in maintaining spinal health by using the Just Start Walking and Straighten Up Australia programs.

Just Start Walking Australia

The Just Start Walking Australian initiative emphasises the important role that keeping active can play in maintaining spinal health. To find out more information go to www.juststartwalking.com.au

 

StraightSUA-461en Up Australia

The Straighten Up Australia community service initiative is an easy and enjoyable everyday program to promote the importance of good spinal health.

Consisting of a set of simple exercises and taking just three minutes to complete, Straighten Up Australia will help improve posture, stabilise core muscle groups, enhance health and prevent spinal disability.

The exercises can be undertaken by Australians of all ages and there is a special program tailored for children.
