Back pain is a huge problem – it’s the leading cause of disability worldwide. Around 8 out of 10 people in the UK suffer from it at some point. This causes over 4 million days off work taken per year! Despite how common it is, there are still a lot of myths about the causes and cures of back pain. These misconceptions lead to a lot of unnecessary pain! To support Back Care Awareness Week we wanted to share the most common misunderstandings to help you avoid back pain.
This year’s Back Care Awareness week aims to highlight how back pain affects carers. Britain has over 7 million carers who look after loved ones for free, saving the NHS £119 billion a year! Caring for someone who is ill or infirm puts a huge strain on you, mentally and physically. This includes a much higher risk of back pain than the general population. Many of our best customers are carers for someone they love. If this is you we’d like to celebrate Back Care Awareness by giving you some tips on how to care for yourself as well as others.
