SPINAL Health Week 2016 runs from
May 23-29 and this year the chiroprac-
tors at Todd Chiropractic, Leongatha are
encouraging you to ‘Back Your Inner
With the Olympics around the corner, thousands
of elite athletes are using health treatments like chi-
ropractic care to perform at their peak. Chiropractors
at Todd Chiropractic, Leongatha would like to re-
mind people that everyone can back their own inner
athlete and perform to their peak by reducing pain,
improving posture and living a healthy lifestyle.
“Every day more and more Australians experience
disabling low back pain, neck pain and headaches,
limiting their ability to work and engage in an active
healthy life,” chiropractor Dr Wayne Todd said.
“Think about all the hours you spend each day
sitting at work or school, commuting, on your com-
puter or other mobile devices and watching televi-
sion,” Dr Todd said.
“Poor posture used during these activities in-
creases pressure on your spine which can cause low-
er back pain, neck pain, headaches and fatigue.”
If you suffer from back pain, neck pain or head-
aches or if poor postural fitness is impacting on your
ability to live life to the fullest, visit a chiropractor
at Todd Chiropractic, Leongatha to help you Back
Your Inner Athlete.
Chiropractic care is an increasingly common and
effective treatment for back pain, neck pain and head-
aches, eliminating the need for drugs or surgery.
“Helping patients make positive changes, with
respect to nutrition, exercise and wellness is also
fundamental to maintaining normal spinal function,”
Dr Todd added.
“Adopting healthy habits today, such as improv-
ing postural fitness, can significantly reduce the risk
of injury or pain in later years. What’s more, good
spinal health can benefit our self-esteem, social rela-
tionships and mental health.”
To help Back Your Inner Athlete, the Chiroprac-
tors’ Association of Australia (CAA) has developed
a CAA Back App - the closest thing to having a chi-
ropractor with you 24/7.
The CAA Back App will be released on May 23.
It can be downloaded free from www.backyourin-
nerathlete.com.au, Apple App Store or Google Play
and is like your pocket chiropractor. As you go about
your day, it sends subtle reminders about checking
your posture, activity levels, water consumption and
movement. Its state of the art ‘augmented reality’
feature animates when hovered over Spinal Health
Week postcards, which are free from your local CAA
Chiropractor. This shows users the correct posture
they should maintain in everyday situations.
“We hope people enjoy using this interactive
technology to improve their posture, which in turn
can help improve their health,” Dr Todd said.
During Spinal Health Week 2016, make an ap-
pointment at Todd Chiropractic, Leongatha for a spi-
nal health check-up and discover what steps you can
take to improve your health and wellbeing and Back
Your Inner Athlete.
You can also visit www.backyourinnerathlete.

Your Inner Athlete app — CAA Back App.

‘Back Your Inner Athlete’
Made it: after driving from South Gippsland
to the Top End, Harry Baess is at Charles
Darwin University in the Northern Territory.
Harry drives to uni – in Darwin
SOME people catch a bus to university
or even drive up to Melbourne.
Harry Baess of Wonga, near Foster, converted
his Land Rover into a mobile study and drove all the
way to Darwin – nearly 4000km.
The agro-forester and his wife Grazyna run
sheep, cattle, a nut plantation and a small automated
They planted more than 12,000 trees and have
twice been awarded tree farmer of the year.
As a mature age student having majored in psy-
chology, he decided to study law at Charles Darwin
University in the Top End, after previously finding the
university friendly during his psychology studies.
“Being an online graduate law student at CDU
Casuarina (Darwin), my wife suggested ‘Why not
spend two weeks on campus for the experience?’”
Mr Baess said.
“She never dreamed I would be mad enough to
actually drive. I converted an old Land Rover rear
canopy to be self-contained, added a solar panel, an
inverter, some batteries, shelves, fridge, cooker and
a bed with storage drawers underneath, and I was
ready to go.”
Mr Baess was surprised by the vastness of the
“The almost 4000km was mainly flat semi des-
ert/low scrub with places up to 930km without any
internet coverage, so I missed some lectures,” he
“As I travelled further and further north my cabin
became a sauna with no air-conditioning for me.
Study was impossible in the heat and at night.
The mosquitoes and sand flies were a challenge that
forced me inside to try and sleep.”
One week later via Kakadu National Park, Mr
Baess is now staying at the university’s accommoda-
tion, International House.
“The people are friendly and I am gradually
meeting my lecturers who all seem very approach-
able,” he said.
“The campus is huge and modern, and the sur-
rounds ideal for bicycling. I bicycle at dawn to the
nude beach for a swim, travelling along a magnifi-
cent luxurious tropical vegetation track.
“If the jelly fish or crocodiles don’t get me first I
will soon drive all the way back home to wood fires
and wearing jumpers again.”
Long way: Harry Baess is all smiles as he starts his near 4000km trip to Darwin from his
home at Wonga, near Foster.
