“We have so many age groups here, this is really good because we have to think about our health. There is something about our health that if you lose it beyond a certain point, it doesn't matter how much money you have you can't get it back. Maintenance is very important, we maintain our cars and so our bodies need maintenance as well,” she said.

For her part, the Chief Executive Officer of Nova Wellness Center, Dr Naa Ashelley Dordor explained that looking at the rate of lifestyle diseases, the clinic saw it wise to use the occasion to enlighten members of the public on the need to stay healthy and also ensure that their spines are well catered for. She also recognized and honoured one of her most loyal patients, Mr. Emmanuel Quarshie with a citation. 

The health walk was preceded by a separate health screening on June 22nd 2018 which also saw over two hundred persons trooping to the premises of the clinic at North Ridge to be screened.

The free health screening featured a health talk on the spine and how wrong posture affects it, BMI and posture checks, as well as a complimentary chiropractic treatment.

“We’ve noticed that a lot of Ghanaians have spinal problems. Either they ignore them or they can’t afford it or for whatever reason, they never treat it. So we decided that as we celebrate our five years anniversary, we’re going to invite people to come in so that we will check their spines to see if there are any problems there,” the Chief Executive Officer of Nova Wellness Centre, Dr Asheley Dordor explained.

 She stated that many Ghanaians are uninformed about their spinal problems due to ignorance.

She bemoaned the low chiropractor-to-patient ratio in Ghana, explaining that for a country  with about  28 million persons, there are just about  15 chiropractors practicing .

Nova Wellness Center was established in May 2013, to provide chiropractic services to families, corporations, individuals and the general public.

The health facility has been of an immense benefit to thousands of individuals to achieve maximum wellness without the use of drugs or surgery.

The Center was recently awarded the best Health Facility at the Small Medium Enterprises Ghana Awards (SMEGA).

The five years anniversary of Nova Wellness Center was under the theme: “Empowering Our Communities to Achieve Maximum Wellness.’’ For the rest of the month of July, Nova Wellness Center has discounted rates for Chiropractic treatment and all are invited to take advantage of this promotion.
