Back pain is a widespread and costly condition. This service helps individuals in the management of back pain, and, through education, aims to prevent it from occurring. For affected individuals, we offer an initial assessment accompanied by the prescription of suitable equipment and exercise programmes to aid in the management of back pain. This is combined with education on the causes of back pain, and how to care for your back at home and work. For health care professionals and carers, we give professional consultation on the proper choice of equipment for back care, and provide educational seminars on the prevention of back pain, and on the principles of lifting and moving immobilized persons.
