A massive 80% of us will suffer from back pain, and 1 in 5 of us will visit our GP with it each year. So it's a common problem. The most common symptom is pain in the lower back, but people may also have muscle spasms, reduced mobility and pain down either or both legs. Poor posture and foot problems can also contribute to back, hip and knee pain. Most back pain is not serious and keeping active or applying hot or cold compresses helps reduce recovery time and pain. However you should seek advice from your GP or a Medical Professional if your pain is associated with fever, swellings or lumps in the back, pain spreading to the higher back or chest or any loss of bowel or bladder control.
Remember though, most back pain is not serious, and although it can be debilitating at the time, the long-term outlook is good. There are many natural treatments available to help that recovery and many of these are available through the clinic and shop at Vitality +. The Open Day is an opportunity to experience one or more of these treatments without obligation and without charge. On 26th March vistors to Vitality + will be able to gain free advice from our therapists including the Osteopath, Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, Podiatrist, and Reflexologist who all treat back and joint pain regularly. All our therapists are fully qualified and registered with their professional bodies.
The atmosphere in the clinic is relaxed and friendly with free Herbal Tea for all. Why not come along and join us. We'd love to see you!
