Dallas, TX, October 16, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Spinal disorders can affect all age groups, from children to the elderly. Back pain is the single biggest cause of disability on the planet, affecting an estimated 1 billion people. World Spine Day 2018 is on the 16th of October, and Parker University is encouraging everyone to #LoveYourSpine
“One in four adults will suffer with back pain at some point in their life,” experts say and “prevention is the best way to improve spinal health overall.”
World Spine Day 2018 focuses on simple steps to help prevent spinal problems. Even people in under-serviced parts of the country, who cannot normally access conventional healthcare resources can benefit from taking preventative actions.
Parker University is encouraging people to focus on strategies like participating in regular physical activity, encouraging good posture in friends and family, lifting safely, reducing stress and inflammation, along with regular visits to your chiropractor.
People from around the globe will come together to celebrate World Spine Day in an effort to highlight the importance of spinal health and well-being. This year WSD18 will be celebrated on every continent with a variety of different events taking place.
To help raise awareness of World Spine Day 2018, and the #LoveYourSpine initiative, Parker University’s student group WCCS is hosting an event in their gym where they will be doing some stretching and demonstrating how to "love your spine."
