25 Years in Chiropractic

Oh how time flies! It’s been 25 years since my graduation as a Chiropractor in Melbourne, back at the end of 1991.

On the first weekend in October I had the pleasure of attending my 25 year reunion. More than ⅔ of the original class were present flying in from as far afield as the UK, New Zealand, Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland for the event, which was held in Melbourne.

There were many stories exchanged, as you can imagine and hopes expressed for 25 more good years in practice for each of us.

Spinal Health Week

Spinal Health Week 2015 runs from May 25th to 31st, the theme is

‘Get Your Happy Back’.

Every day more and more Australians experience disabling low back pain, neck pain and headaches, limiting their ability to work and engage in an active healthy life.

One explanation for this is the impact an increasingly sedentary lifestyle has on postural fitness. Think about all the hours you spend each day sitting at work or school, on a computer or other mobile device, watching television or playing computer games. Poor posture increases pressure on your spine, which can cause low back pain, neck pain, headaches and fatigue.

Low back pain is a growing problem and now ranks second in Australasia and seventh in the world according to the World Health Organisation’s latest Global Burden of Disease study. Neck pain is also problematic, ranking ninth in Australasia and 21st in the world.

 If you suffer from back pain, neck pain or headaches or if poor postural fitness is impacting on your ability to live life to the fullest you need to Get Your Happy Back.

Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between body structure (primarily the spine and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how this relationship can restore and maintain health.

Each week around 215,000 patients visit an Australian chiropractor. Chiropractic care is an increasingly common and effective treatment for back pain, neck pain and headaches eliminating the need for drugs or surgery. This means chiropractic care can also be very cost effective in comparison to other types of treatment.

Adopting healthy habits today (such as making healthy lifestyle changes around nutrition, exercise and improving postural fitness) can significantly reduce the risk of injury or pain later on and have a positive impact on your self-esteem, social relationships and even mental health.

Back, neck and spinal problems are also a leading cause of lost productivity in the workplace and forced early retirement. Every year forced early retirement has a traumatic effect on the hopes and prosperity of a large number of Australians.

 During Spinal Health Week at Wenban Chiropractic we will be offering free spinal/postural check-ups, beginner yoga and beginner Pilates classes to make it easier for you to start your journey towards better health. Our Chiropractor is also available for workplace spinal health checks and spinal health talks. 

 Contact Wenban Chiropractic, 66816816 for an appointment today and discover the steps you can take to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Get Your Happy Back.

 Spinal Health Week 2015 is a national initiative of the Chiropractors’ Association Australia (CAA).
