WSD is an initiative of the Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health conceptualised to raise awareness about the serious impact of spinal disability and to empower people to take charge of their spinal health.

This years  year the theme is ‘Your Back in Action’, emphasising the importance of healthy spinal posture and activity which promotes body awareness and minimises the day-to-day wear and tear on the spine. The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) encourages people to take this opportunity to become proactive about their spinal health.
