Straighten Up Ireland is all about raising awareness of the importance of good posture, movement and daily care of the spine.

Back problems are the second most common cause for GP visits second to the common cold. Back and neck pain is one of the most common causes for absences from work. Up to 80% of people will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives.

While Chiropractic care is very effective at helping people with back and neck problems, Chiropractors prefer to educate people to look after their spines to prevent the onset of these problems in the first place.
