Celebrate October 16 As World Spine Day

The focus of this year’s World Spine Day (WSD) is “Your Back at Work.” The goal is to prevent injuries in the workplace and promote long term spine health. WSD is a part of the Bone and Joint Decade Action Week. Bone and Joint Decade is a global alliance focusing on musculoskeletal health.

To celebrate this day, the WSD campaign is encouraging you to demonstrate healthy spine mechanics and share them with social media using the tags #worldspineday, #spineselfie, #yourbackatwork. You can also follow World Spine day on Twitter at “World Spine Day” or on Facebook at “World Spine Day.” 

Resources to help you celebrate are available on the WSD website and includes posters, handouts, press releases, tool kits, videos, and more.
