You don't need to be a sporting professional to achieve peak performance. You can perform and live better through reducing pain, maintaining good spinal function and living a healthy lifestyle.

The Chiropractors' Association of Australia encourages you to Back Your Inner Athlete by making sure you have the three P's of chiropractic care tended to:

    • REDUCE PAIN by helping de-stress your spine
    • IMPROVE POSTURE by educating you on correct posture
    • ACTIVATE PERFORMANCE by placing importance on good spinal health and function, alleviating pain, improving posture and mobility, and living a healthy lifestyle, to assist with improving performance in life.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 'globally, around 31% of adults aged 15 and over were insufficiently active in 2008 (men 28% and women 34%). Approximately 3.2 million deaths each year are attributable to insufficient physical activity'.1

Through the Back Your Inner Athlete campaign, the Chiropractors' Association of Australia is supporting the initiative of the WHO Member States to achieve 'a voluntary global NCD target for a reduction of 10% in physical inactivity by 2025'.2
