Sit right and sit less for a healthy spine
Do you spend most of your day sitting, whether it’s at work, in the car, on public transport, or watching TV? Well, you’re not alone. Australia is a nation of ‘sitters’ and its starting to take its toll on our health.
Chiropractors Association of Australia(CAA) has launched Sit Right, a national initiative that aims to encourage Australians to take note of the potentially dire health consequences from prolonged sitting.
Australians are spending more time than ever sitting which not only causes spinal damage, but increases the risk of disease and even death. Sit Right focuses on the dangers of long-term sitting, especially for office workers, and offers solutions for common ‘sitting sins.’
So why not improve your health simply by standing up and moving around more? It’s also important you take regular breaks from sitting to stretch, stand, change or correct your posture or walk around your office.
An active spine is a healthy spine and a healthy spine leads to a healthier life. As part of the initiative, We are also offering short workplace presentations to discuss preventing problems from posture and improving spinal health. Why not organise a presentation for your work place or make an appointment with our clinic to assess your spinal health and discuss how being more active will improve your wellbeing?
