Back Pain

Back pain causes thirteen million lost working days in Britain each year.ᅠ If the pain has been caused by excessive strain, e.g.; lifting excessive weights or slipping whilst doing so, be sensible and take things easy.ᅠ When sitting, sit upright with support for the small of the back.

Take pain killers and try to move as normally as possible.ᅠ Local warmth such as a hot water bottle or from a rubbing liniment will also help to ease the discomfort.
