Straighten Up Ireland Week in County Tipperary to highlight importance of a strong, flexible and balanced spine

The Chiropractic Association of Ireland (CAI) launched the seventh annual Straighten Up Ireland Week, which will take place from Monday 11th October and run for a full week to include World Spine Day on Friday 16th October. The theme of this year’s campaign is ‘Healthy Spine, Healthy Brain’ and aims to highlight the importance of a strong, flexible and balanced spine to keep brains healthy and enhance overall body function.

CAI President, Dr. Tammy Verlaan-Ross, Chiropractor, commented: “The spine is a vitally important part of our body and influences our overall health and wellbeing. It provides structure, support, movement and it affects the communication between the brain and body. CAI chiropractors are experts in assessing spinal health and aim to restore the health and function of your spine, thereby improving the communication between your brain, your body and the environment.  This allows you to enjoy an active life and maintain overall wellbeing.”

To further raise awareness of the importance of spinal health, local CAI chiropractors in Tipperary* will be offering a Spine and Nervous System Check throughout Straighten Up Ireland Week. The assessment will cost €30 and operate on an appointment only basis. One hundred per cent of proceeds will be donated to charity partner, Spinal Injuries Ireland, to contribute towards the provision of support services for individuals with a spinal cord injury. Please visit to make an appointment for a Spine and Nervous System Check at your local CAI chiropractor.

The CAI is also encouraging adults and children to commit to a three minute exercise programme, specifically designed to maintain a healthy spine, improve posture, stabilise core muscle groups and boost health. The Straighten Up Ireland exercises can be undertaken by people of all ages with a special program tailored for children.
