Held annually on October 16, WSD is an international day to raise awareness about spinal pain and disability and promote spinal health. This year and as Albertans continue to forge ahead through the pandemic, these efforts are more important than ever and captured by the theme of getting “Back on Track.”
This year's theme aimed to inspire Albertans to return to a healthy balance of activity for their spines. For some of us, the pandemic led to a drastic reduction in activity, while for others, a drastic increase in activity. One way or another, the pandemic has dramatically changed how we move and use our bodies, and inadvertently increased incidences of back and neck pain in people working from home.
