How good would it be to have a pocket Chiropractor!
Did you know that Australian adults, on average, spend an estimated five hours per day sitting, with a quarter of the population sitting for more than eight hours per day? This can have an effect on your spinal health.
Stretching and performing spinal exercises can help improve spinal health and the way the body functions. And to help you, the Australian Chiropractors Association has designed the ‘Straighten Up app’ to act as ‘Your Pocket Chiropractor’.
The Straighten Up app includes a 3-minute daily spinal health program designed to improve posture, spinal health, stabilise core muscle groups and enhance health and prevent spinal disability.
You can also set reminders to receive notifications about:
taking breaks; and
improving your posture.
Studies conducted overseas indicate that 90% of people who adopted the exercises as part of their daily routine reported a postural improvement. Approximately 80% reported that their backs are more comfortable and that they have better core stability after practicing the activities for several weeks.
