It’s a huge problem, costing the NHS £1.3 million a day, and the UK economy £37 million a day, with around one per cent of the working population off sick due to back pain every day.

BackCare stresses that ‘back pain doesn’t kill, it tortures’. This won’t be the case for everybody, of course. For many people, the pain will only be mild or will improve or disappear quickly.

For others, though, back pain is a debilitating, chronic condition which can have a huge impact on quality of life.
