October is Spine Health Awareness Month and World Spine Day is October 16th!
According to WorldSpineDay.org, World Spine Day highlights the importance of spinal health and well being. Promotion of physical activity, good posture, responsible lifting and healthy working conditions will all feature as people are encouraged to look after their spines and stay active.
An estimated one billion people worldwide suffer with spinal pain. It affects people across the life course and is the biggest single cause of disability on the planet. Effective management and prevention is therefore key and this year’s World Spine Day will be encouraging people to take steps to be kind to their spines..
The World Spine Day theme for 2020 is BACK ON TRACK!
With the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic affecting millions of people worldwide, lockdown restrictions have led to a lack of physical activity that has made people more susceptible to spinal pain and disability.
World Spine Day 2020 will focus on getting people BACK ON TRACK to revitalize their spines and restore spinal health and well being.
Some tips to prevent back pain from the American Chiropractic Association:
- Maintain a healthy diet and weight.
- Remain active—under the supervision of your health professional.
- Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
- Warm up or stretch before exercising or physical activities, such as gardening.
- Maintain proper posture.
- Sleep on a mattress of medium firmness to minimize any curve in your spine.
- Lift with your knees, keep the object close to your body, and do not twist when lifting.
- Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to spinal tissues.
- Ensure that your computer workstation is ergonomically correct.
