A UNIQUE HEALTH AND SPORTS PROGRAMME FOR STRAIGHTENING THE SPINE IS BEING IMPLEMENTED IN THE STARK ARENA FITNESS CENTER
Spine deformities and postural disorders in children and adults are largely the result of the modern lifestyle that alienated us from movement, which is one of the main characteristics of a human being. According to the data from the Institute of Public Health of Serbia “Dr. Milan Jovanović Batut“, 20% of children have degenerative changes in the spine and a large percentage of adults have problems with the spine and osteoporosis (every third women and every eighth man suffers from osteoporosis). For this reason, unique health and sports programme “Straighten Up and Exercise“ was initiated at the Stark Arena Fitness Center, in cooperation with the “Spinal Center Milinković“ Foundation, which will officially begin with implementation on September 4.
This programme, aimed at children and adults, includes a health check by Prof. Dr. Zdeslav Zdenko Milinković, who is the project founder, spinal surgeon and team physician of the Tennis Federation of Serbia. After the health check, all the interested will be prescribed with appropriate exercises whose performance will be supervised by professional instructors trained to work with spinal issues.
“Straighten Up and Exercise“ is an advisory programme aimed at detecting and indentifying a spinal issue on time.
The main goals of this programme are rising general awareness about spinal deformity issues and sharing the knowledge of degenerative changes in the spine, which is the main cause of back pain. Early detection of deformities in children, under the professional supervision of a medical specialist and adequate physical activity, will greatly contribute to reducing the percentage of a deformity.
“SPINAL CENTER MILINKOVIĆ“ FOUNDATION initiated “STRAIGHTEN UP AND EXERCISE“ project in 2009, aimed at introducing the public with the issues of prevention and treatment of spinal deformities, injuries and diseases in children, adults and sportsmen.
The STARK ARENA FITNESS CENTER occupies 300 m2, and 160 m2 of the space is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. Apart from providing top training conditions, the Stark Arena Fitness Center has extremely professional staff that consists of top fitness trainers, as well as free parking space.
