In support of 2013 World Spine Day and Straighten up Ireland week (14th – 20th October) Clane Chiropractic is offering free spinal checks. So if you are having problems and would like us to take a look, answering any questions you may have, for free, why not give us a call.
Straighten Up Ireland (SUI) is an on-going community service initiative of the CAI, and is an easy and enjoyable everyday exercise program to improve your health and the way your body functions.
Consisting of a set of simple exercises and taking just three minutes to complete, SUI will help improve posture, stabilise core muscle groups, enhance health and help prevent spinal disability.
The exercises can be undertaken by people of all ages with a special program tailored for children.
The exercises can be completed at any time of day but are most beneficial when they form part of a daily routine. It’s hoped that over time everyone in Ireland will take a few minutes every day to care for their spinal health, just as they do for their dental health.
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.
