#CHIROCANHELP – SPINAL HEALTH WEEK 2018

There is no denying that we live an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, spending hours each day sitting at desks or curled up on couches watching TV. The average Australian spends 2 hours and 25 minutes a day watching television.7 That's a long time in one position and it can be hazardous to your health. Most of the time, when people watch TV, they are either slouching or lying in ways that put strain on their shoulders, back, or hips. Unwinding in front of the television shouldn't feel like work but it also shouldn't leave you feeling miserable the next day (which can happen if your body is not properly aligned).

#CHIROCANHELP – SPINAL HEALTH WEEK 2018

We can all relate to carrying as many bags as possible to save us making another trip. However, is the time you’re saving worth it? Lifting more than you are able to carry can cause immense strain on your body. Furthermore, with bad lifting technique, it can be even worse for your back.

#ChiroCanHelp - Spinal Health Week 2018

There is no denying that technology has transformed the way we live, but we are spending more and more time glued to our mobile devices. Australians spend 10 hours and 24 minutes on average engaging with their mobile devices every day.3 Within five minutes of waking up in the morning 35% of us check our phones, and 70% use phones during mealtimes with family and friends.4 This excessive reliance on digital devices is taking a toll on our bodies.

How Often Do You Think About Your Spine?

Spinal health is something we only pay attention to when we are in pain. The spine is a very important part of your body and its health can have a big impact on how well the rest of your body’s functions perform. Spinal health issues, even subtle ones, can affect your general outlook of life and overall wellbeing. Poor spinal health can be caused by a variety of lifestyle factors such as insufficient exercise, sedentary lifestyle, bad posture or poor sleeping habits.

Headaches are becoming increasingly common and we are often guilty of taking some painkillers and ignoring the problem.
