Back Care Awareness Week 6 – 12 October 2014

The charity BackCare campaigns for back pain, as well as shoulder and neck pain.  The charity are having an awareness week highlighting neck, shoulder and back pain.  Office workers can experience due to posture, chairs that do not support the spine correctly.  In addition not taking enough breaks to stretch out the back are not helpful.

BackCare estimate that 30million people will suffer with neck, shoulder and/or back this year. Of these 10 million will still experience pain in 12 months time and 3 million will have had 3 months off work.  The charity tries to promote awareness of simple things people can do to reduce/avoid the risk of suffering back, neck and shoulder pain.

If you suffer with neck, shoulder or back pain, why not try acupuncture. Enquiry form
