#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).

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.
