October 5th – 9th is Back care awareness week, supported by Backcare.org.uk – the charity for the promotion of back care.
Back pain affects up to 80% of adults at some time in their lives.
There is a great deal you can do to help prevent back pain occurring or recurring including:
1) Stand and move as much as possible during the day: 8 hours hunched over a desk are not good for your back (or your energy levels or waist line). Consider whether you can introduce some standing time at work, whether by using a standing desk (Ergotron do some great ones or if you are handy or know someone who is you could construct a desk platform) or by getting up and moving around regularly.
2) Work on your core stability and strength. Our clinicians and experienced Personal Trainer can advise you on safe and effective exercises to build your muscle tone without building bulk.
3) Invest in a good bed. We spend about 1/3 of our lives in bed, so investing in a supportive mattress and pillows is very important. Experts recommend changing your mattress at least every 8 years, but we recommend replacing it sooner if your mattress feels too firm or too soft, or if you feel sore in the morning or when you get up.
4) Lift safely – many back injuries occur when people try to lift something too heavy, or awkward, and don’t lift properly. If your job involves lifting speak to your company about manual handling training if you don’t do it already. You should always check the weight of the object first, and if it’s too heavy to lift safely alone either enlist help or find a suitable device to help with the lift. Lift with your legs (spine upright and straight) rather than your back.
5) Get a check up: You wouldn’t skip a service for your car, or wait until you are in pain before going to the dentist, but in spite of all the support our backs give us, relatively few people go for regular check ups for their backs – at least not until they run in to serious problems.
Back problems can develop over a number of years and pain may not be apparent at first. A back expert can help identify problems early and prevent them deteriorating and creating chronic pain problems.
Back pain is ‘notoriously’ difficult to diagnose and treat, but we believe this is because most people seek help for back pain from people who are not experts in backs! The chiropractors and osteopaths in our team have particular expertise in back pain and related problems, and we can refer you to our internal team for massage therapy, podiatry, or IDD disc therapy for slipped discs.
Look after your back – after all, it supports you every day!
