BAD BACK?


Learn how to manage and minimise painful episodes.

If you’ve ever suffered back pain you know how debilitating and painful it can be. The good news is by being proactive through physical exercise you can make such a difference.


Back pain is one of the most common reasons for doctors’ visits in the UK. In the year 2018 to 2019 the UK lost 2.8 million work days due to back pain and 30% of the total work days lost due to muskelatoral issues were because of lumbar spine/trunk issues*.


There are many contributing factors to back pain such as lifestyle, age, posture and occupation. A lot of these issues can be overcome with specific strength training exercises targeting weaker areas of the back.


You must, however, always proceed with caution when dealing with back issues, you need to know the cause of your pain to ensure you are performing the relevant corrective exercises.


When you have the knowledge to proceed safely you can do so much through exercise to help decrease your susceptibility to back pain and improve your mobility and quality of life.


Always seek professional advice before proceeding and never start a new exercise program if you are in chronic pain.
