World Spine Day – October 16, 2014

A CHIROPRACTOR from Sicklinghall is giving free spinal assessments on Saturday 18th October 10am – 1pm.

Dave Hill, chiropractor and founder of Sicklnghall-based practice Brighter Life Chiropractic, is offering the sessions in honour of World Spine Day.

The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the importance of good posture and spinal health, with care providers and organisations all around the world providing information, tips and tools to help prevent back problems.

Dave Hill said “Spinal disorders, such as back pain, neck pain, scoliosis and disc disease, to name a few are common, and they can have a profound effect on a person’s overall health, impacting a person’s ability to work, to enjoy everyday activities and even disrupting healthy sleep patterns.

“Research has demonstrated that poor postures and inactivity can contribute to the development of back pain, neck pain and other spinal disorders.”

Some facts:

  • Up to 80% of people will suffer from back or neck pain during their lives.
  • 50% of the working population will experience back or neck pain symptoms at least once a year.
  • Back and neck pain is one of the most common reasons for workplace sick leave
  • Back pain is the second most frequent reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by the common cold.

“The good news is that many of these common problems can be easily avoided!”

To help mark World Spine Day, Brighter Life Chiropractic is offering free spinal checks at their premises in Sicklinghall on Saturday 18th October between 10am and 1pm.

They will also offer a free information evening, open to all, on Tuesday October 21st at 6.30pm.

Appointments must be made in advance, which can be done by calling 01937 918 419.
