Every year on October 16, people from around the world join together to raise awareness on World Spine Day as part of the Bone and Joint Decade’s Action Week.
Spinal disorders represent a global
health-care crisis, affecting over a billion people worldwide and
contributing more to the global burden of disease than HIV, more than
malaria, more than diabetes, more than stroke, more than lung and breast
cancer combined, according to WSC.
WSC is urging chiropractic
and other health-care practitioners to help raise awareness about spinal
care and raise funds for the work WSC is doing globally.
Here are several ways to help in this initiative:
• Donate $3 for every treatment provided on World Spine Day
