Be nice to yourself
I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the beautiful spring sunshine.
Working in this industry, I should know better, but every year I worry that my body is somehow not good enough to be exposed in swimwear on holiday.
Back pain and how acupuncture can help you
Back pain is debilitating, it can affect anyone, and a majority of people will suffer from it at some point in their lives. It is also one of the main reasons for work-related absence.
According to NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence), back pain affects over a million people in the UK, with 95% of patients suffering from problems affecting the lower back. It is estimated that it costs the NHS and community care services more than £1 billion each year.
In most cases lower back pain is not caused by anything serious, but is a sprain, muscle strain, minor injury, or a pinched or irritated nerve. It can also occur during pregnancy, because of stress, viral infection or a kidney infection.
