Chiropractors –Helping You ‘Back Your Inner Athlete’

Spinal Health Week 2016 was held in May and this year the chiropractors at Total Balance Chiropractic are encouraging you to ‘Back Your Inner Athlete’.
With the Olympics around the corner, thousands of elite athletes are using health treatments like chiropractic care to perform at their peak. Chiropractors at Total Balance Chiropractic would like to remind people that everyone can back their own inner athlete and perform to their peak by reducing pain, improving posture and living a healthy lifestyle.
“Every day more and more Australians experience disabling lower back pain, neck pain and headaches, limiting their ability to work and engage in an active healthy life,” said chiropractor James Cobb.
“Think about all the hours you spend each day sitting at work or school, commuting, on your computer or other mobile device and watching television,” James said. “Poor posture used during these activities increases pressure on your spine which can cause lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and fatigue.”
Chiropractic care is an increasingly common and effective treatment for back pain, neck pain and headaches, eliminating the need for drugs or surgery.
“Helping patients make positive changes, with respect to nutrition, exercise and wellness is also fundamental to maintaining normal spinal function,” added James.
“Adopting healthy habits today, such as improving postural fitness, can significantly reduce the risk of injury or pain in later years. What’s more, good spinal health can benefit our self-esteem, social relationships and mental health.”
James suggests, “As you go about your day, think about checking your posture, activity levels, water consumption and movement”.
To celebrate Spinal Health Week 2016, Total Balance Chiropractic has introduced fun and educational ‘Lunchbreak Postural Presentations’ for workplaces wanting to ensure the postural health of staff.
