During 2020 working from home conditions had a huge impact on Australian’s spinal health. Three-quarters (72.2%) of people who had to work from home reported that they had suffered from posture related pain.1
The effects of spinal problems often extend beyond just physical pain. A third (32.6%) of Australian’s living with pain admitted that they had issues with their mobility while one in five (20.7%) said that it caused them anxiety and depression.1
During March’s mobility month Chiropractors are encouraging their patients to assess their spinal health and mobility with a simple four stage test.
If you find it difficult to perform or feel pain with one or more of these tests, seek guidance from your chiropractor or other healthcare professional.
