Back pain is the single largest cause of workplace absence in the UK! Around 20% of the population will suffer from a ‘bad back’ at some point in their lives and everyone has their offerings of ‘what might help’.
Back pain can be very frightening but, thankfully, is rarely serious. You very seldom need scans or an operation, and most back pain is what’s known as mechanical.
Discs – these are like shock absorbers between the bones in your back. A ‘slipped disc’ is a bulging portion of the disc which is irritating the nerve or surrounding tissue in your back. These can’t be ‘slipped back in’, but the correct care and treatment will resolve the problem with time.
