As part of its long term commitment to educate, inspire and empower individuals to move from ‘sick care’ to ‘wellness care, the Nova Wellness Center, has given a free chiropractic and sitting massage services to members of the Pentecost International Centre (PIWC) Atomic, Accra.
The event which forms part of the health center’s corporate social responsibilities was held to celebrate this year’s Republic Day.
NWC is a vibrant and dynamic healthcare facility that uses Chiropractic, Nutrition, Exercise and Massage to treat diseases.
Speaking at the event, Dr. Naa Asheley Dordor, a Chiropractor at the Nova Wellness Center advised the congregation to be mindful of their healthcare and to have regular health checkups to determine the state of their body system.
She further told them to have spinal x-ray tests as soon as they feel symptoms of spine disorder, since it’s effective to correct it at an early rather than old stage.
“It is easy to correct spinal misalignment at the early stage compared to the later stage where efficiency is low,” she said.
She stressed that a lot of factors contribute to the misalignment of the spine. Some of these, she said includes; stress, car accident, posture, anxiety and carrying of heavy loads on the head are a few of the activities that can result in spine disorder.
Dr. Naa said one should be careful of what they take in since some toxins like alcohol, nicotine and caffeine softens the bones which makes them move out of place causing spinal misalignment.
She therefore encouraged the congregation to make sure that they eat well and visit health centers for spine checkups once they feel symptoms. She also advised them to pay attention to their posture and exercise regularly for free flow and circulation of blood.
Nova Wellness Center is a natural healthcare center with the primary aim of correcting spine and its associated disorders without surgery or medicine.
