We would like for everyone in Bermuda to find a friend to take part in helping each other achieve daily goals.
“The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in extreme lock down measures that have restricted people’s ability to undertake physical activity and isolation from friends and family. Forcing many people to work from home led to increased reports of back and neck pain with further isolation resulting in mental and physical impact on many people.
“The Bermuda Chiropractic Association’s World Spine Day 2020 campaign will emphasize how people can get #BDABackOnTrack, re-energize themselves with healthy spine habits and restore their activity levels and improve their mental well-being.
“Low back pain is the single leading cause of years lived with disability. This highlights that the spine is the backbone of your health. It houses the nervous system which controls and coordinates the function of every organ, tissue and cell in the body. Proper prevention and ensuring a healthy spine – made up of 24 separate vertebrae and over 60 joints – is therefore of paramount importance.
“The evidence tells us that physical activity is one of the most important ways we can look after our spines. Daily exercise and simple measures to keep your spine functioning properly often help to prevent joints from getting creaky and painful. So this World Spine Day, let’s all commit to getting our spines #BDABackonTrack!
