October 16th World Spine Day
Today is all about back health. If you have ever hurt your back you already know it pretty well prevents you from doing anything. The experts say that 1 out of every 4 people will hurt their back in such a way it alters their lifestyle. The day was created by the National Action Networks in 2012 which is now the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Disorders. We kid about days like this but it really is a day to be aware of just how important your back is to you.
How to celebrate – Study the back so if you are hurt, you know where the pain comes from. Do exercises that strengthen your back. Get a massage.
