About three in 4 people have one or more bouts of back pain. Most soon ease and are not due to serious back problems. In most cases the usual advice is to keep active, and do normal activities as much as possible. Painkillers are helpful until the pain eases. Chronic (persistent) pain develops in some cases, and further treatment may then be needed.

Some really good back exercises and information about current research
About 8 in 10 people have one or more bouts of low back pain. In most cases, it is not due to a serious disease or serious back problem, and the exact cause of the pain is not clear. This is called nonspecific lower back pain. The usual advice is to keep active, and do normal activities as much as possible.
Back pain is a major health issue costing the country and the health service billions of pounds every year. Musculoskeletal disorders are one of the leading causes of sickness absence, which it is estimated costs the UK economy £15bn annually.
We believe that by working together with other organisations, we can help prevent back and neck pain, which has a significant impact on more than 80% of the UK population.
Lots of information on diagnosis, treatment and prevention including how to lift and handling awkward objects. Includes videos explaining how bad posture contributes to back pain, how to improve your health at work, and back stretches.
