Spinal problems are costing the NHS £481 million per year. Dental care previously had a similar problem. A lack of dental hygiene lead to a high percentage of gum disease and tooth decay but a huge educational push and regular dental visits reduced the number significantly.
When should we start looking after our spines? When should we start a spinal hygiene push with regular chiropractic visits?
If we don’t start until the age of 20 37% will already have permanent damage. If we wait until we are 50 years of age 4 out of 5 will already have degeneration of the spine.
We look after our teeth because we want to look better, if our spines were on our face would we take more care of it?
This study has shown that our spine can rot and wear out without us feeling pain.
