Back pain will affect 80% of us at some point in our lives. The majority of problems are lifestyle related, and that includes the work place. Simple changes to the office environment such as the location of lighting, the pc and phone, and changing the seating can dramatically improve the health of your employees.

Some jobs can include numerous repetitions of activity whether it is lifting or just reaching for a phone the wrong way. Over a period of time this can cause the back to fatigue and can predispose the back to injuries. This can manifest itself as RSI, headaches, arm and hand pain.

Regular 'mini breaks' throughout the day, and changes to seating and lighting can alleviate the fatigue the body suffers from and subsequently keep the employee happy fit and well motivated throughout the day. Additionally free spine check assessments in the work place can be undertaken to ascertain the spinal health of employees.

Working Days Lost

Almost 31 million days of work were lost last year due to back, neck and muscle problems, according to the Office for National Statistics, more than any other reason. A two-year trial in Madrid showed that by assessing and treating 13,000 workers with MSKs who had been off for five days or more, their temporary work absence was reduced by 39% in the long term.

Each person suffering from musculoskeletal pain took an estimated 17.4 days off work on average in this period and one in six working days lost in the UK is due to back pain.

Cost to Employers

It is estimated that 4.5 million working days (full-day equivalent) were lost in the previous 12 months due to work-related musculoskeletal disorders which mainly affected the back.

The charity BackCare estimates that back pain costs the NHS, business and the economy over £ 5 billion a year.

I had suffered from neck and shoulder discomfort for nine months as a result of a whiplash injury and although I had other manipulative treatment which helped in the short term, it didn't get to the root of the problem. After one treatment the effects were apparent: I used to dread a night's sleep because my neck would be so painful in the morning. After two treatments the pain was gone and I felt like a new woman.
