    BACK pain stats are shocking in the UK As AHP Osteopaths, we are here to help you : Work, Rest & Play Better!

    Back pain is common. 
    It is estimated that 80% of adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
    As age increases the number of people suffering as a percentage increases too. Peaking at the ages of 35-55 years.
    In 85% of cases there is no clear pathology behind the back pain.
    The risk factors most likely to contribute to back pain are; age, weight, sedentary lifestyles, repetitive lifting, bending, reaching, straining, pulling, vibrations, stress, anxiety, depression and smoking.
    90% of people with acute back pain will recover in 6 weeks, but 8% will go on to develop chronic back pain conditions.
    The NHS spends around £1 billion on back pain costs a year. Privately we spend over £550 million on it per year.
    It is estimated that employers loose £590 million a year due to back pain related illness. The UK is not alone in this and it is the 2nd most common reason for work absence. In any one day 1% of the population will be off due to back pain.
    Back pain, in particular when persistant, can have a significant impact on people’s lives. It frequently reduces their quality of life and adversely affects their family and social relationships.
    40% of people who suffer will see their GP about it and 10% will see an osteopath, physio or chiropractor.
    Keeping active as soon as it is possible is key.
    Around 35,000 people will see an osteopath every day. Of these, 54% of all new patients are seen within a day of their initial phone contact and nearly all are seen within a week.
    Public surveys indicate that 85% of people felt that osteopathy should be in on the NHS. In most areas it is only available privately at varying costs. Private medical cover will generally cover osteopathic appointments.

    Posture & Flexibility
    The joints and muscles of the human body become accustomed over time to the way in which we use them. As a result of poor sleeping habits, sitting positions or driving style, anyone can easily develop bad posture. Bad habits can cause a compromise within the body that leads to inefficiency; the result being pain, stiffness and dysfunction.
    Once such postural disruption has occurred the treatment may take time. Sudden postural change can make the condition worsen initially, as the body re-learns an improved and less demanding pattern of use.
    Muscles and joints that become locked into damaging postural habits need careful encouragement using manipulation and muscular release. Often remedial exercises are also required to help the body adapt and be more flexible.
    Osteopathy is a safe and effective form of Primary Health Care.
    We are now Allied Health Practitioners recognised by NHS England
    We first explore you presenting symptoms and concerns during a detailed case history.
    This takes perhaps half your first consultation – but is critical to move forwards.
    Gathering this information and developing an understanding of your health history as well a detailed physical examination helps us form a time line and frame for what is wrong
    We then explain what we feel is going on, in the context of your broader lifestyle at work, rest and play – and how much we feel we can help, or what referral might be needed.
    We will help you understand all the contributing factors to your case to help you engage with the process of getting better and what changes you might need to make.
    We may provide tailored individual exercises, at the right time, to help you improve.
    We will also advise you on how you perform sports and exercise that you already do.
    Our Osteopaths will explain to you:
    Why you are in pain
    How long your recovery should take
    How many treatments you should need over what period
    When it is ideal to return to full physical activity
    When it is most appropriate to be referred to another professional

    **Describing your pain**
    The person who can best describe their pain is you!
    * **Stabbing pain?**
    * **Shooting pain?**
    * **Dull ache?**
    * **Constant nagging?**
    Your description also gives an indication as to how you feel about the pain.
    Having a new severe pain or unaccustomed less severe pain can be quite worrying.
    This is especially apparent when the reason for the pain is unknown to you.
    **Pain Patterns**
    Many problems reoccur in episodes over some months or years. Over time, the frequency of these episodes may increase and spur the sufferer to take action. It may be that each episode becomes more severe and lasts for an increasing amount of time.
    Looking at the daily pattern of symptoms may give an indication that you require treatment, stretching exercises and some individual advice concerning seating posture, pillows or your bed, etc.
    Some people find that their problem is worst first in the morning with painful stiffness that is eased by activities during the day, but with pain returning towards the end of the day.
    Others find that they have no problem first thing in the morning, but that their problem gets worse gradually all day.
    Some individuals find their symptoms fluctuate during the day according to the types of activities they undertake.
    Many people suffer a low level of background ache for much of the day, which may occasionally exhibit sharper levels of pain dependent on the activity they undertake.
    Few people find that their symptoms remain at a high-level for much of the day, and are even woken at night by their pain.
    **Pain and its affects on daily life**
    With long-standing muscular or joint pain and stiffness, it is very possible that your life style may become affected.
    Certain jobs around the house are put off.
    You may have to reduce your sporting activities for fear of injury.
    Your working day may become uncomfortable and less productive.
    The people around you begin to notice that your tolerance to the demands of daily life has reduced considerably.
    You may then begin to realise that it may be time to do something to try and improve your condition.
    Undertaking treatment and following individually prescribed advice may not only reduce your symptoms but also have wider beneficial effects on your everyday home, work and recreational time.
    **Pain can affect your mood**
    Pain can play a large part in your mood.Suffering pain can certainly change your inner strength and alter the normal drives that allow you to meet the challenges of modern life.
    Muscular and joint pain and stiffness can prevent you from participating in activities that are enjoyable as well as reducing the motivation and capacity for work and sports.
    **** Things to Consider to help us take a full and accurate Case History****
    * ****Where are your main symptoms? ****
    * ****How long have you had them? ****
    * ****Are they worsening? ****
    * ****What medication do you take? ****
    * **What other treatment have you had?**
    * ****How are these symptoms affecting your work or leisure? ****
