Back pain is estimated to affect at least 60% to 80% of the population at some time in their lives, and around 2.5 million people in the UK have back pain every day of the year. It is the leading cause of disability with almost 31 million days of work lost in 2013 due to back, neck and muscle problems, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Back pain can be caused by various factors including twisting awkwardly, incorrect lifting techniques, or poor posture during daily activities.
However, back pain can be eased considerably with some simple lifestyle changes such as stretching, exercise and diet. In this video one of Elite Therapy’s senior therapists, Joel, will discuss in detail the leading factors that contribute to back pain as well as good back health and how this can be achieved and maintained whatever your age or level of fitness.
Whether you are currently receiving treatment, have had treatment in the past or have never needed treatment, this seminar aims to deliver information that will help you take control of your back pain.
