October 16th is World Spine Day

by Garreth

WSD-spine-day-squareIt’s an initiative of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health that is coordinated each year by the World Federation of Chiropractic.

This year the theme is “Straighten Up and Move” which accords with evidence supporting optimum care for spinal disorders and the World Health Organization’s focus on physical activity as a way to combat a range of health disorders including cardiovascular disease, obesity and, of course, musculoskeletal disorders.
