As part of Bone and Joint Decade’s Action Week, World Spine Day on 16 October, raises awareness about spinal disorders!

Spinal pain and disability can have a profound effect on a person’s overall health, sometimes preventing them from working or even doing simple daily activities.

Research has demonstrated that poor posture and inactivity are major contributors to the development of back pain and other spinal disorders. According to the World Health Organization, one in four adults is not active enough and over 80% of adolescent population is not active enough.

This year, the World Spine Day (WSD) theme is “Your Back In Action”. We want to highlight the importance of physical activity and improving posture as part of good spinal health and prevention of injury.

Call for Action
Help raise awareness and share an image, reasons, importance, tips, etc. on how to keep #YourBackInAction on Social Media using the respective Tag #YourBackInAction #WSD2017
