World Spine Day
On October 16th we celebrated our spines! The goal behind World Spine Day is to raise awareness about spinal health and spinal conditions.
Did you know back pain affects 632 045 million people worldwide and neck pain affects 332 049 million people worldwide?! (Lancet, Global Burden of Disease, 2012).
Take the opportunity to give your spine a movement break each day and don't hesitate to make an appointment for manual care, exercises, and education.
Back Pain - The Basics
There are many potential pain contributors within your back. This can include the joints between the vertebrae in your spine, the capsule that surrounds each joint, ligaments, tendons, muscles, the discs that are between the vertebrae in your spine, and even nerves can become irritated or compressed to give symptoms.
