World Spine Day - 16th October 2023

The World Spine Day theme for 2023 will be EVERY SPINE COUNTS

“Move Your Spine” has been announced as the theme of World Spine Day 2023

The 2023 campaign calls on people to care for their spines by staying active. Evidence has shown that immobility and a lack of physical activity are contributors to spinal pain and disability. “Move Your Spine” encourages people of all ages, in all nations, to get active and support their spinal health through movement. An estimated one billion people suffer with spinal pain with 540 million people at any one time. Low back pain remains the leading cause of years lived with disability on the planet. Spinal pain and disability are more prevalent than cancer, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s Disease combined.

We call on everyone worldwide to get involved in World Spine Day 2023’s Move Your Spine campaign. The World Spine Day organizing team are producing materials to support local initiatives around the world. To find out more, go to www.worldspineday.org, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
