SPINAL HEALTH WEEK 2013
Spinal Health Week 2013 (formerly National Chiropractic Care Week)
A healthy spine means a healthier life. Spinal Health Week, a national initiative run by the Chiropractors' Association of Australia, is for chiropractors to educate Australians about the importance of spinal health in improving overall health and wellness.
Spinal Health Week 2013 - 20th to 26th May
LET'S GET BACK TO OUR BEST
This year's theme, Let's Get Back to Our Best, will focus on the benefits of improving postural fitness as well as speaking to the broader public of the need to support chiropractic care and research.
Launching Spinal Health Week 2013, Andrew McNamara, CEO of the Chiropractors' Association of Australia said, "Australians have got it right and sitting may well be the new smoking".
Over two million Australians have back problems each year. The consequences of back pain are serious – it affects families, lifestyle and productivity. People with back problems report 2.5 times more disorders, such as depression.
As part of our community involvement Dr Andy Crozier spent time doing complimentary postural assessment at Sleepy's Kotara.

Healing Wave Chiropractic have WON the 2013 Sparke Helmore Corporate Triathlon teams event for the 5th consecutive year. The Triathlon festival held on Sunday 17th March 2012 at the Newcastle foreshore attracted a field of over 2000 participants in the traditional short course team relay format. We entered 14 teams and won places in 12 categories, including two 1st places. An incredible outcome considering we won 7 categories last year with double the number of teams. Congratulations to everyone involved, Champion effort!
Special mention to Dr. David Diehm, his wife Kath and our Office Managers Sharlene and Robyn for the many hours of preparation, organising participants and volunteering on the day. Thank you.
DYNAMIC GROWTH CONGRESS- Brisbane, Feb 2012
STRAIGHT BACK TO SCHOOL 2013
YELLOW BUSINESS COACHING, October 2012
RECONNECTION AT LYCEUM, AUCKLAND, NZ 2012
CHIROPRACTIC BIOPHYSICS SEMINAR, SYDNEY
On the weekend of 1-2 September, Dr David Diehm from The Junction Centre, attended a 3-day Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) technique seminar. The Harrison Spinal Model, (developed by Dr Don Harrison, D.C., PhD, M.S.E.), focuses on the individual's posture. Just like blood pressure, there are normal ranges for spinal alignment. When you fall outside of these normal ranges, the spine will degenerate faster than it should and wear like a car tyre that is not properly aligned. Research of the Harrison Spinal Model has been published in prestigious journals including Spine, Journal of Spinal Disorders, Journal of Orthopedic Research, and Clinical Biomechanics.
David will share new information from this seminar with his colleagues during internal clinical training.

5TH ANNUAL CALJAM CONFERENCE- Los Angeles, Feb 2012
We have returned from the most exciting Chiropractic Event on the planet. 1800 delegates were treated to a buffet of high quality presenters, many regarded as leaders in their respective disciplines. The 3 day conference had a rock theme that created the perfect backdrop to entertain the audience between speakers.
Following day one we were fortunate enough to attend the gala ball and mix with the speakers. The photos above show Dr. Jeanne Ohm, paediatric specialist (left), Dr Brad Glowaki, Marketing Guru (middle) and Dr Guy Riekeman, Head of Life Chiropractic College (right). The line up was amazing! We are sure to have a Healing Wave presence at the 6th annual CALJAM next year.
The Healing Wave team is continually learning new approaches and advancements within Chiropractic. We regularly attend seminars to further our education so we can pass the benefits on to people attending our Centres.
As we are a research based organisation we keep up-to-date with the latest journal releases and apply recommendations where appropriate.
