Straighten Up Canada


social-notxt-5Focus on maintaining healthy posture to enhance spine health while on the job! As we know, the effects of sitting for long periods of time are wreaking havoc on the backs and general health of Canadians. In fact, lower back pain (LBP) and other musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions account for 1/3 of employee absenteeism in Canada. This is why World Spine Day brings healthcare providers and organizations together from across the world in OCTOBER every year to achieve these specific goals:

1. Raise awareness about spinal health and disorders
2. Provide an opportunity for and encourage ongoing discussion about the burden of spinal disorders.
3. Promote an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach to easing the burden of spinal disorders.

It’s time to Straighten Up Canada and improve your spinal health!

Canada’s chiropractors have developed an app for that. Straighten Up Canada is a FREE, easy-to-perform posture program that you can use in just three minutes a day. It’s the only free Canadian app specifically designed and completely dedicated to improving posture and spinal health.
The Straighten Up Canada program can be practised almost anywhere and is a great warm up, cool down, stand-alone routine or ergonomic break.
