Back and Neck Pain………..Meeting the challenge together
At least 80% of the UK population experience back pain at some stage in their lives – that is 51 million people
With over 50 years of experience behind us BackCare is a national charity dedicated to spinal health and wellbeing. We help prevent unnecessary back injury through education, involvement in research and provide practical and emotional support to those living with back pain – whether caused by injury, wear and tear, musculoskeletal disorders such as Axial SpA, Scoliosis and Spina Bifida or other underlying health conditions like Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease or Cancer, for example.
Often invisible, back pain is a Cinderella condition, too often ignored and neglected. However, it is a major health problem, causing sufferers many other issues too. If you or someone close to you has ‘a bad back’, you know how wretched it can be. Words cannot begin to convey the suffering and unhappiness back or neck pain can cause.
Our members help us to continue our valuable work. Together, we can make a difference.
We will keep you in touch with a copy of our TalkBack magazine (by email or hard copy), our magazine dedicated to spinal health and wellbeing.
