Spinal Health Week is the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) flagship campaign, which will take place this year on 23-29 May 2022! This year, the ACA is raising awareness of the causes and negative effects of neck pain, with the 2022 theme ‘Sore Neck? Consider a Chiro’.
Back and neck pain is recognised as one of the leading causes of disability globally. Research shows that neck pain is a leading cause of disability in adults (reported up to 20% of adults), with many presenting for assessment.
In the Global Burden of Disease study in 2010, neck pain ranked fourth highest in terms of disability and twenty-first in overall burden. Not surprisingly, neck pain (cervicalgia) constituted in the top five back problem hospitalisations in 2017-18.
This clearly demonstrates the need to educate Australians about their options for neck pain treatment and to consider chiropractic care as their most suitable healthcare option.
As part of Spinal Health Week, ACA have two great competitions!
