What’s up with Britain’s backs?

To mark Chiropractic Awareness Week in April, the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) revealed the results of consumer research undertaken to ascertain the health of people’s backs across different regions of Britain.

The research, as with other research published recently yet again highlights the increase in back and neck pain, with this research showing a 12% rise in back and neck pain nationally since 2017.

The research has also found significant differences between regions in the number of people experiencing back or neck pain.57% of people in Northern Ireland say they are currently suffering back or neck pain. This is in comparison to only 40% of people in the South East saying the same.

The top back or neck pain trigger reported across all regions was lifting and carrying. This was followed by sitting still for long periods.
