For the better part of the last year, Rhode Islanders, along with the world, have hunkered down for the pandemic. While staying home, working and learning from home, has helped fight the pandemic, it’s taken a toll on many Rhode Islanders in terms of their back and spinal health. The Straighten Up, RI campaign, sponsored by the Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island (CSRI), seeks to remedy that with on-going advice from the Ocean State’s chiropractic physicians.

Starting January 15, 2021, the Straighten Up, RI campaign will begin a campaign to get Rhode Islanders moving and address overall back health. It will feature articles, videos and blogs at www.StraightenUpRI.com covering a range of topics on stretching, home office ergonomics, pain reduction and overall wellness during and beyond the pandemic.

“With this campaign, we look to educate and inform, Rhode Islanders and, most of all, get them moving to improve overall back health, reduce chronic pain, and stay well—during the remainder of the pandemic and beyond,” said Dr. Kristin Fabris, a chiropractic physician at Be Well Chiropractic in Providence and a member of CSRI’s board of directors. “

The Straighten up, RI campaign will address such topics as: How to move during Covid (Tips for online yoga, T’ai Chi, and basic exercises/stretches); Working from home (Tips for improving posture and ergonomic setup for workstation); Schooling from home (What’s the best ergonomic set up for kids? How do you keep the kids active and keep screen time to a minimum); Keep moving from home for Seniors (Basic movements, exercises, stretches and resources for seniors who are mostly indoors at this time); and Tips for maintaining Spinal Health (Wellness tips from Rhode Island’s leading chiropractors).

The Straighten Up, RI campaign offers sponsorship opportunities for businesses and organizations looking to help spread the message of health and wellness during the pandemic. Sponsorship opportunities include three levels: Naming sponsorship - $5,000; Partner sponsorship - $2,500; and Friend sponsorship - $1,000.

Interested sponsors should contact Dr. Kristin Fabris at [email protected]  or 401-(401) 337-5684.

To generate as much helpful content as possible, CSRI invites all Rhode Island chiropractors to participate. There’s no fee involved. Content can be submitted by e-mail to [email protected].

“We’ve extended this campaign to CSRI members and other RI chiropractors so that we can help get the word out to as many Rhode Islanders as possible,” said Dr. Michael Gottfried, a CSRI board member and chiropractic physician at Aquidneck Chiropractic in Middletown, RI. “When it comes to keeping people healthy during the pandemic, it literally is all hands on deck.”
