Back pain is the number 2 reason for long term sickness in the UK and this figure translates across to Europe too.
According to the UK's HSE, it it the number 1 reason for lost working days in jobs involving manual labour.
It is estimated that at any given time 1% of the working population is off work through lower back pain alone.
One of the most common causes of back pain is poor posture as a result of a lifetime of small, habitual movements and positions we adopt through our work, home life, hobbies, sports and generally living. Left uncheck these can lead to discomfort, pain and lack of moblity which has a seriously detrimental effect on quality of life.
Sciatica, prolapsed discs, stiff neck and reduced spinal mobility, as well as aches and pains through the pelvis, lower back and shoulders are common symtpoms of poor posture.
