Spinal Health Week

This year’s Spinal Health WeekTM theme is GET YOUR HAPPY BACK and will be held from 25 to 31 May, 2015.

The Australian Government’s Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that 70-90% of Australians will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives and 10% will experience significant disability as a result.

Adopting healthy habits now (eg improving postural fitness) can significantly reduce the risk of injury or pain later on and have a positive impact on your self-esteem, social relationships and even mental health.

At Footscray Chiropractic Clinic we can assess your spinal health and discuss how a more active, health lifestyle will improve your overall wellbeing.
