This year’s theme for World Spine Day was “Straighten Up and Move,” focusing on the importance of proper posture and movement in maintaining good spinal health. Health care providers and organizations around the world provided important information, tips and tools to help prevent spinal disorders.
This past week and ending tomorrow, the Genoa-based Italian Chiropractors' Association or Associazione Italiana Chiropratici (A.I.C), held their annual Settimana della Chiropratica or Chiropractic Week nationwide. Free check-ups were given at chiropractic offices throughout Italy.
