Straighten up for backcare awareness week

Backcare Awareness Week (8 to 12 October) follows new consumer research that almost half the UK population has suffered from back pain.

Backcare Awareness Week is encouraging people to straighten out their approach to back care, following research from the British Chiropractic Association that 43 per cent of people are limited in their activity by back and joint pain.

NHS Employers together with the Partnership for Occupational Safety and Health in Healthcare (POSHH) and other back care professionals from the NHS have produced a guide: Back in Work - Back Pack.
