Help for back pain
Back pain has been for many years one of the most common forms of pain and results in loss of ability, function and enjoyment of day to day activities.
It is very debilitating and in it's sever form can lead to depression.
The reasons for back pain have changed over the years but below is a list of common back problem causes....
1: Bad lifting technique
2: Manual labour, [This has largely but not exclusively been replaced by cause #3]
3: Sitting over a desk working on a computer
4: Muscle/Fascial tension created by the above
5: Lack of stretching
6: Muscle/Fascial imbalances
7: Genetical biomechanics which pre-dispense the individual to a greater chance of the possibility of back pain, IE, Very tall people, Ladies with large busts.
Chronic pain affects between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK, corresponding to just under 28 million adults, based on data from the best available published studies.
Over 30 million working days were lost due to musculoskeletal problems including back pain, neck and upper limb problems in the UK in 2016.
It's the second biggest cause of sick days accounting for over 20% of total working days lost.
HOWEVER there is help, the techniques I have used over the years to treat my clients with back pain have been very successful, these are the following........
1: LIFESTYLE ANALYSIS, find out what the client does for a living and recreation, find a potential link and then offer an alternative way forward.
