Consumer research from the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) has revealed the state of back health across the various regions of the country. What’s particularly interesting to note are the wide variations found across the regions of the number of people experiencing back and neck pain.
The research indicates that the region with the best back health is the South East where 40% of people complain of back and neck pain. However, in Northern Ireland this number jumps to 57% of people currently having back and neck pain. That’s a 17% variation.
As with many research findings published, this research confirms that back and neck pain is on the increase across Britain, with numbers showing a 12% increase in back and neck pain since 2017.
As far as taking a proactive approach to prevent back and neck pain, Londoners lead the way, followed by those in the South West.
Across all regions the research showed that lifting and carrying were the prime triggers for back and neck pain.
As chiropractors we know only too well the impact that back pain can have on people’s lives. Across the majority of regions the most likely impact of back and neck pain was reported as preventing sleep, followed by preventing exercise.
