An active spine is a healthier life
By: Activ8 Health & Fitness

An active spine is a healthy spine, and a healthier spine lead s to a healthier life.


Sutherland Shire residents are being encouraged to put their best foot forward and start walking for their wellbeing during National Chiropractic Care Week, which runs from 23rd to 29th May 2011.

The human body is designed for movement and while modern technology is allowing us to be more mobile, physically we are less active. This year National Chiropractic Care Week coincides with the launch of Just Start Walking Australia which is a new campaign designed to prompt people around Australia to, quite simply, just start walking. Just Start Walking Australia follows an initiative from the World Federation of Chiropractic, developed to raise awareness about the importance of keeping active, the benefits this can offer to your overall wellbeing and spinal health, as well as providing an easy-to-use program to help encourage regular physical activity. And what better way to encourage people to stay active than through walking - it is simple, inexpensive, achievable and easy.


Local chiropractor Alison Wafer agrees that while we are living in more mobile times thanks to portable technology, physically we are less active. The human body is designed for movement, so to keep your spine at its best we need to stay active - it is time to lace up the sneakers and quite simply, just start walking. Also, while modern technology may be convenient, it may also be impacting your posture. Poor posture can affect your overall health, impacting on things like your breathing, digestion, circulation and how well your organs function. National Chiropractic Care Week is a useful prompt for members of the public to make an appointment with a local CAA chiropractor to check your spinal health and discuss how you can start walking your way to better wellbeing.


During the entire month of May in the lead up to National Chiropractic Care Week, chiropractor Alison Wafer is excited to welcome local residents who wish to book a FREE posture and mobility check at CHIROCONNECT in Caringbah to assess their spinal health.
Chiropractors are five year university trained and can aptly provide clear diagnosis, advice and treatment for spine and posture related problems. Chiropractic promotes general health by not just providing diagnosis and care of disorders relating to the spine and nervous system, but also in the provision of self-care pertaining to lifestyle factors and movement.
