About Spinal Health Week 2020

Spinal Health Week is the ACA’s flagship campaign, which will take place this year on 17-23 August 2020.

For those who know and love the traditional Spinal Health Week format, this one will run a little differently to previous years. As the ACA launch the new campaign Consider a Chiro, we have set up a dedicated page which has all the information about this year’s Spinal Health Week theme!

About Consider a Chiro

As with every Spinal Health Week, this year’s theme is ‘Consider a Chiro – My Chiro, My Action Plan on Pain’. During the week ACA chiropractors from across Australia will be asking their communities to Consider a Chiro for the care of their back pain, neck pain and headaches.

These common conditions affect a number of Australians every day. For instance:

  • up to 90% of people will experience back pain at some point in their life and an estimated 16% of the population currently have back problems;1
  • general practitioners are consulted seven times per week for neck pain;2 and
  • 4.9 million people in Australia suffer from migraines.3

It is important that Australians understand all their options when it comes to caring for their health and wellbeing. The good news is that chiropractic may offer you a drug free alternative to not only help prevent and alleviate pain, but to promote a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.

This Spinal Health Week is a perfect time to make an appointment with your local ACA chiropractor to see how they may help if you suffer from pain.

Find a Chiro

Chiropractic care is not a one size fits all healthcare option. Chiropractors carefully assess each patient individually and tailor their care accordingly. By using a variety of non-surgical techniques, such as specific spinal adjustments, manual therapy and low-force intervention, chiropractors offer a drug-free, hands-on approach to spinal healthcare.
