‘Get Spine Active’ this World Spine Day

world spine day

With half of Australians not sufficiently physically active, residents of Mount Waverley are being encouraged to ‘Get Spine Active’ and take control of their spinal health this World Spine Day. 

Celebrated each year on 16 October, people from around the world come together to raise awareness about spinal disorders and empower others to take charge of their spinal health.

An annual initiative of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health, World Spine Day is accompanied by the 2019 theme ‘Get Spine Active’ and local chiropractor Dr Shaun Beovich from Waverley Chiropractic Centre believes there is no better time to spread this important message.

“Being physically active can greatly help your spinal health by strengthening your muscles and easing the pressure on your spine,” Dr Beovich said.

While the ‘Get Spine Active’ theme aims to focus on the benefits of exercise and daily movement for maintaining health, Dr Beovich says it’s important to think about how all daily habits can affect your spine.

“World Spine Day is a perfect opportunity to ask yourself, ‘am I making the right choices for my spinal health?’ If not, then it’s time to make those changes and if needed seek professional help to get you started.”

‘Get Spine Active’ will focus on common physical activities including running, swimming, weightlifting and cycling, with the aim of encouraging all Australians to incorporate one of these activities or other healthy habits into their everyday lives.

Other forms of physical activity can include stretching, walking and taking small breaks during your workday. To help Australians get started on improving their spinal health, the Australian Chiropractors Association has developed the Straighten Up app designed to help improve posture, with a 3-minute stretching exercise program. They have also created the Just Start Walking app to help encourage Australians to experience the benefits of walking and also allows you to track and map your walks so you can monitor your progress and improvement.

Waverley Chiropractic Centre is encouraging their community of Mt Waverley to Get Spine Active this World Spine Day and take the correct steps to improve their spinal health.

Chiropractors are well placed to assess and manage disorders of the musculoskeletal system and offer solutions and advice regarding your existing spinal health issues or how to improve your overall spinal health.

Fast Pain Relief

We all want pain relief as soon as possible. Whether it’s back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches or arm and leg pain. No one likes being in pain. It interferes with our daily activities, our work, our play and can be quite debilitating. As your local family chiropractor at Waverley Chiropractic Centre I want to get you out of pain as quick as possible.

fast-pain-relief-mt-waverley-chiropractor

24 years of chiropractic experience tells me though that the body often needs time to heal. We live in a fast paced society where we expect quick turnarounds in most things. We don’t like waiting. Unfortunately the body is one thing that can’t be rushed. Yes you can cover up the symptoms but true healing, true health takes time. The longer a problem has been there, the older you are, previous trauma, how fit you are, how much you sit, how stressed you are etc may all impact on the time taken to heal, especially when it comes to your spine.

So can I strongly recommend we work together. It starts with having realistic expectations on the time it takes to recover from your back or neck pain. Follow the advice given, do your stretches, ice/heat etc, get enough rest/sleep, keep moving as much as possible and keep your chiropractic appointments. Allow time for your body to recover, to heal. And as we get you out of pain we want to move towards a state of wellness. Where your spine, and in particular your nervous system is functioning to its peak.

If you are in pain now then give chiropractic a try. Family chiropractor Dr Shaun Beovich is experienced in dealing with many of your aches and pains. Waverley Chiropractic Centre services the Mt Waverley, Glen Waverley, Burwood, Chadstone, Clayton, Ashwood and surrounding areas. Book online here or call 9581 2624.

Prevent Back Pain – Love Your Spine

‘Love Your Spine’ this World Spine Day

 Prevent back Pain – Love Your Spine. Every year, people from around the world come together on World Spine Day (an initiative of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health) to raise awareness about spinal disorders and empower others to take charge of their spinal health.

Our increasingly sedentary lifestyle is having a profound negative impact on our health and especially our spines. Back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders are on the rise and Australians of all ages are suffering. The good news is that it is possible to prevent such spinal health issues without the need for drastic measures.

The theme for World Spine Day this year is ‘Love your Spine’, emphasising the importance of looking after your spine and taking steps to prevent spinal disorders. Regular physical activity, good posture, lifting safely, healthy working conditions and lifestyle adjustments can improve spinal health and overall wellbeing.

Staying active helps spinal tissues and muscles stay healthy and eases the pressure on the spine. Whether it’s walking, running, swimming or taking regular breaks from sitting, Australians are encouraged to incorporate physical activity into their daily routines. Good posture also plays an integral role in optimal spinal health, as it allows the spine to be correctly aligned and reduces the amount of strain on the body.

Ways to ‘Love Your Spine’ this World Spine Day:

  • Be mindful of your posture
  • Practise responsible lifting
  • Get moving and stay active
  • Download the Straighten Up app

The Australian Chiropractors Association has developed the Straighten Up Australia app to help you stay active, improve your posture and enhance spinal health. The app has posture reminders, a daily exercise program, and other helpful resources to assist Australians in taking control of their health.

Most people underestimate the positive effects that simple lifestyle changes can have on spinal health. World Spine Day is a great opportunity to assess your activity levels, posture and other lifestyle choices, and make adjustments accordingly.

Sciatica Treatment in Glen Waverley

Here at Waverley Chiropractic Centre in Glen Waverley, we often see patients with sciatica. It’s a painful condition which may be present with or without back pain.

Sciatica is the Latin word for “Pain down the back of the leg” and is usually caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve in the lower back.

sciatica waverley chiropracticThe sciatic nerve runs from the lower back down through the buttocks and along the back of each leg. Sciatica is pain along this nerve and is a relatively common form of back pain and is usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated or bulging disc.

The pain from sciatica can be anything from infrequent and irritating to severe and debilitating. Usually, it affects only one side, the pain radiating through the buttock and down the leg and is often associated with a constant pain on one side of the buttocks, pain in the leg and/or buttock that may be worse when sitting , burning or tingling down the leg, weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot or a shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up.

While sciatica can be extremely painful and uncomfortable, it is rare that permanent nerve damage (tissue damage) results. Most pain is due to inflammation and will improve within a period of time. Nerve pain is caused by a combination of pressure and inflammation on the nerve root, and treatment is centred on relieving both of these conditions.

Typically, sciatica is made worse by bending, lifting, sneezing and coughing.

Sciatica is a common problem for manual workers, sedentary office workers and is particularly prevalent during pregnancy.

Chiropractic Treatment main objectives are

  • reduce pain
  • restore movement
  • strengthen weakened muscles
  • reduce tension

Causes of Sciatica

The sciatic nerve is the main nerve in the leg and the largest in the body. It runs from the base of the spine, along the back of the thigh to the knee, where it divides into branches.

Sciatic pain is usually caused by compression of this nerve root at the point where it leaves the spine. Damage to the nerve can also cause pain.

In young and early middle-aged adults, the most common cause of sciatica is a prolapsed intervertebral disc in the lumbosacral area of the lower back.

In older people, changes in the spine due to conditions such as osteoarthritis may be responsible either by causing localised pressure on the nerve or by narrowing of the spinal canal – called spinal stenosis.

Other bone disease or local injury may also be responsible.

Pressure on the sciatic nerve can result from a number of reasons including

  • Sometimes, just sitting awkwardly can cause sciatica.
  • Piriformis syndrome (tightness of the piriformis muscle in the buttock that compresses the sciatic nerve)
  • Spinal misalignments, vertebral dysfunction
  • herniated disc
  • Poor posture – wearing high heels, prolonged sitting, poor mattress
  • Poor lifting technique and poor bending habits
  • Spinal compressions due to osteoporosis

Diagnosis of Sciatica

Since there are many disorders that can cause sciatica, our first task at Waverley Chiropractic is to determine the exact cause of your sciatic nerve interference.

Chiropractic treatment

  • Always begins with a thorough history,
  • Spinal, orthopaedic and neurological examination.
  • Special diagnostic imaging investigations such as X-ray, CT, MRI

Treatment of Sciatica

As sciatica is due to pressure on the sciatic nerve, it stands to reason that treatment involves removing this pressure. Your Chiropractic treatment aims to achieve this by reducing nerve pressure caused by poorly moving spinal joints as well as easing muscular tension in the lower spine, buttock and leg.

This is achieved by using a combination of the following techniques:

  • Spinal mobilisations
  • Massage therapy and trigger point therapy
  • Stretching tight muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments
  • Ultrasound and other electrical stimulation devices
  • Advice in relation to how to minimise pressure and irritation of the sciatic nerve

In addition to this, you will be given a series of home stretching exercises and asked to apply ice and heat to help aid your recovery.

If you are suffering with sciatica at the moment please do not delay – often you can achieve the best results when you address the symptoms early!
