Oct. 10, 2014 – World Spine Care (WSC), an international not-for-profit group aiming to increase access to spinal care, has partnered with proponents of World Spine Day and the Bone and Joint Decade to raise funds to bring spine care to communities in need.
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.
