Chiropractic Webinar: How Your Posture Affects Your Health

10 March 2021, Singapore – Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more people are working from home in adherence to the Covid-19 Safe Management Measures. As a result, they are more likely to spend most of their time seated down. To help alleviate the issues that come with a sedentary lifestyle and to also educate the importance of our spine and its effect on our health, the Association partnered with Asia One Chiropractic to bring our members a chiropractic health webinar titled, “Chiropractic Webinar: How Your Posture Affects Your Health”.

The webinar was an engaging, fun and informative talk that gave ASPRI members a deeper understanding and a greater insight on the importance of good spinal health, with useful workspace station setup, tips and stretches that they can do at the comfort of their office or home.

Dr Neil Furuno, Senior Chiropractor of Asia One Chiropractic, opened the webinar by giving an overview of the nervous system. He emphasised that our spines, which consist of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar curves, are crucial to our wellbeing and they act like a tunnel for the spinal cord and nerves.

Some of the most common spinal conditions include scoliosis – a sideways curvature of the spine, sciatica – a pain that radiates along your lower back through your hips and buttocks
and herniated disc – a fragment of the disc nucleus that is pushed out into the spinal canal through a tear or rupture in the annulus.

Aside from environmental and emotional stressors, our spines are also affected by physical stressors which include falls, footwear, sleeping posture and working posture. These types of stress lead to chronic bad postures and injuries, which create degenerative changes to the spine over time.

Finally, Dr Neil shared the benefits of a chiropractic treatment before disclosing tips for maintaining a healthy spine by showing attendees how to ergonomically set up their workspaces and how to do simple stretches. The webinar was then concluded before transiting to a one-on-one consultation session for attendees that wish to privately consult with Dr Neil.
