Celebrating Chiropractic Awareness Week 2024

Search
This Chiropractic Awareness Week (22nd—28th April), the team at Hagley Road Chiropractic and the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) have embarked on a mission to improve the back, bone, and joint health of the local Birmingham community by offering their consultations for just £10 ( normally £60) from the 22nd to 28th April 2024. 

Head Chiropractor Nick Grier comments, ” We know many people put their health last, so we want to encourage people to take action; our health needs to be put first, and we are here to help. You don’t have to live with pain and avoid the things you love. Chiropractic is a natural therapy that we want more people to know about and have access to.”

Recent data from a 2023 study by the BCA shows that over half (56%) of Brits across the country feel hesitant about seeking help from their GP about bone and joint-related issues* – with data from NHS England showing that over 30 million working days are lost due to musculoskeletal conditions every year in the UK*. Chiropractic Awareness Week aims to raise awareness about the importance of back, bone and joint health.

 

As well as the reduced consultation offer, Dr Nick Grier DC and Dr Lucy Evans MChiro are keen to help promote better spinal well-being and have gathered a series of tips, tricks and hacks you can add into your daily routine to keep the back pain at ease:

Tips to keep back, bone and joint pain at ease
  • Sit up: If you’re watching TV or using a computer or mobile device for a prolonged period of time, make sure you are sitting comfortably with your back supported in the base of the chair. Sitting with your head forward adds strain on your neck and back, so also make sure that you are sitting with your head directly over your body.
  • Get moving: Your back loves to stay active, so try and move around every 20-30 minutes, whether at home or at work (an easy trick is to stand up every time you’re on the phone). Being active is also a great way to keep back pain at bay, but don’t be tempted to go straight in, full throttle with high endurance-based activities, especially if you haven’t exercised in a while. You can gradually build up your exercise load with swimming, walking or yoga, which can be less demanding on your body while still keeping you physically active.
  • Take a break: When sitting for long periods of time, ensure you stand up and move around every 30 minutes. When at work, also make sure your desk is set up to support a comfortable position. This is different for everyone, so if you don’t feel comfortable in your current set-up, try altering the height of your chair or screen.
  • Sleep comfortably: The Sleep Council recommends buying a new mattress at least every 7 years. Mattresses lose their support over time, so if you can feel the springs through your mattress or the mattress is no longer level, your mattress is no longer providing the support you need. Everyone has different support requirements, so when purchasing your mattress, ensure it is supportive for you. If you share a bed and require different mattress types, consider two single mattresses that are designed to be joined together to ensure you both get the support you need.
  • Check your workspace: If your job primarily involves sitting at a desk and staring at a computer for hours at a time, make sure your desk is set up to support a comfortable position. This is different for everyone, so if you don’t feel comfortable in your current setup, try altering the height of your chair or screen.
