Straighten Up

Straighten Up – ongoing community service initiative of the Australian Chiropractors Association

Straighten Up Australia is an ongoing community service initiative of the Australian Chiropractors Association.  It is an easy and enjoyable program that can be used every day to improve your health and the way your body functions.

Consisting of a set of simple exercises and taking just three minutes to complete, Straighten Up Australia will help improve posture, stabilise core muscle groups, enhance health and prevent spinal disability.

The exercises can be undertaken by Australians of all ages with a special program tailored for children.

The exercises can be completed at any time of day but are most beneficial when they form part of a daily routine.  We hope, that over time all Australians will take a few minutes every day to care for their spinal health, just as they do for their dental health.

Studies conducted overseas indicate that 90% of people who adopted the exercises as part of their daily routine reported a postural improvement. Approximately 80% reported that their backs are more comfortable and that they have better core stability after practising the activities for several weeks.

While your chiropractor can’t be there 24/7 correcting your posture, the new Straighten Up App can! Designed to act as ‘Your Pocket Chiropractor’, this app aims to address the growing posture issues and back pain problems faced by Australians.

Improve your health and the way your body functions!
