How to deal with back pain

  • If you have back pain, see an osteopath sooner rather than later
  • Hours in one position can cause problems – avoid ‘computer hump’
  • During repetitive tasks, vary your rhythm and take frequent breaks
  • Adjust car seats and, on long journeys, take regular breaks to stretch
  • Pace yourself with heavy work like gardening – don’t ‘risk a disc’
  • Watch children’s posture – they shouldn’t carry bags on one shoulder
  • During pregnancy, see an osteopath to help your body adjust to changes
  • Avoid strain when lifting (particularly small children and shopping)
  • Take regular exercise – your osteopath can help you find what’s right for you
  • If symptoms do not clear up within a few days, consult your osteopath for advice and treatment
  • If it hurts, don’t do it!

  Karen is unbelievable at what she does. I have been having treatment on my back for over 20 years but the last 12 months I have been seeing Karen has been far the best. I could not live without her now.
