Tomorrow, 16th October is Worldwide Spine Awareness Day. World Spine Day highlights the burden of spinal pain and disability around the world. With health professionals, exercise and rehabilitation experts, public health advocates, schoolchildren and patients all taking part, World Spine Day is celebrated on every continent.

World Spine Day highlights the importance of spinal health and well being. Promotion of physical activity, good posture, responsible lifting and healthy working conditions will all feature as people are encouraged to look after their spines and stay active.

World Spine Day 2020 will focus on getting people BACK ON TRACK to revitalize their spines and restore spinal health and well being. This campaign will be the spinal public health event of 2020. World’s Spine Day vision is a world of healthier spines – help us to get the world get BACK ON TRACK!

An estimated one billion people worldwide suffer with spinal pain. It affects people across the life course and is the biggest single cause of disability on the planet. Effective management and prevention is therefore key and this year’s World Spine Day will be encouraging people to take steps to be kind to their spines.

Populations in under-served parts of the world often have no access to conventional healthcare resources to care for spinal pain and disability. Dedicated spinal health professionals do not exist in many parts of the world, helping people to self-manage their conditions is important. Even in high-income countries, back pain afflicts many millions of people, resulting in an enormous impact on industry and the economy.

Organized by the World Federation of Chiropractic, World Spine Day has over 600 official organizational supporters worldwide. More information about how to get involved is available at www.worldspineday.org  on Twitter and Facebook.

Simply registering your support via the organisations page helps them to spread the word and help them keep you in touch with the latest events occurring worldwide.

Since 2012, the World Federation of Chiropractic has been coordinating World Spine Day in collaboration with organizations around the world. This October 16, 2020 will mark the ninth official World Spine Day. They are calling on people and organizations around the world to join together to raise awareness around the prevention and effective management of spinal conditions.

World Spine Day has become a focus in raising awareness of back pain and other spinal issues. With health professionals, exercise and rehabilitation experts, public health advocates, schoolchildren and patients all taking part, #BackOnTrack will be celebrated on every continent.

The aims of WSD:
  1. To raise awareness about spinal health and spine disorders among individuals, communities, professionals and all stakeholders associated with spine care;
  2. To provide a forum for ongoing discussion about the burden of spinal disorders and the sharing of best practices; and
  3. To promote an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach to easing the burden of spinal disorders.

A month ago I wrote a review on the posture correcting Shirt from ActivePosture.co.uk which has NeruoBand technology to help with back and spinal pain. Since then I have worn it a lot more often and for longer periods especially while working on my laptop or travelling.

These posture correcting shirts are to help relieve pain and realign your shoulders and spine. I guess I am the perfect candidate to review this top as I have both lumbar and cervical problems after both areas have had spinal fusion surgeries. Good posture is important for anyone with or without problems and the NeuroBand Technology in these shirts works by providing resistance to different areas of your body which helps to pull your spine and shoulders into the right position.

After wearing it over the last four weeks I have noticed my neck and shoulder pain is less which I am sure is due to the top. I am someone who prefers loose clothing so the tightness of this top was something I had to get used to in the beginning but then, strangely enough, it doesn’t feel as tight the more you wear it. It says to hand wash in cold water which is how I washed it and the shirt washes well.  It’s strange as the minute you take the shirt off you feel a sense of your muscles altering like you have just had a work out in the gym or a swim.

You can definitely feel a gentle reminder to pull your shoulders back while sitting at a desk. I would normally have to get up several times and lift my shoulders up and down because of my pain. I also find this top a great support if I am going on a long car/train journey and would highly recommend it for travel. All in all, I have definitely benefitted from wearing the posture correcting shirt and will continue wearing it. With a 30 day money back guarantee available with the shirt where can you go wrong?
