Dance is a beautiful art form. The hallmark of a great dancer is one who incorporates fluidity and mobility into their movements. This also means a dancer is one who places tremendous stress on their body.

 

As of 2011, 35 per cent of Canadian children aged three to seven were enrolled in organized dance. The same study says adult dance professionals spend an average of 17.7 hours in dance per week. Leisure adult participants say they devote 6.5 hours per week to their involvement in dance.

Sleep. All of us could probably use more of it with our go-go lifestyles. Approximately 14 per cent of Canadians suffer from insomnia.

 

A good night’s sleep is essential to our overall health and well-being.

 

It can be frustrating, when we do get around to getting some shut-eye, we can wake up with neck, back or shoulder pain. We should wake up from our slumber refreshed and relaxed instead of with aches and pains.

August 8, 2016 • Ryan Spiteri

The Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors has long been a huge proponent of backpack safety for children.
