London: How Healthy Is Your Back After National BackCare Awareness Week?
At the end of National BackCare Awareness Week, the Osteopaths at Posture Dynamics have reiterated the importance of keeping your back in tip-top shape the whole year through and highlighted how easy it is to keep your back healthy with just a few changes to your daily routine.
If you missed out on attending any of the nationwide seminars and events held as part of National BackCare Week, Daren Fletcher, the founder of Posture Dynamics recommends a quick refresher course in some of the basics of modern health. Its all too easy to get caught up in busy daily lives and forget that we need to make time to ensure our joints and muscles remain supple and active.
National BackCare Week was a timely reminder that staying active and exercising regularly plays a significant part in the prevention and management of back pain.
Integrating the services of Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Acupuncture, Sports Massage and Pilates, Posture Dynamics have been keeping Londons backs healthy for over a decade.
In order to prevent back pain and manage any existing pains, National BackCare Week drew attention to the huge range of exercise classes and disciplines now widely accessible in the UK.
Lessons in arts such as Pilates and Yoga may have age-old roots but they can help to treat a very modern problem, adds Fletcher. These disciplines of stretching and strengthening exercises help to condition the bodys core and are particularly recommended for those who do have problems with sore and aching backs.
The BackCare Charity for healthier backs also recommended making small changes to the daily office routine. At Posture Dynamics, the osteopaths regularly treat office workers in Kensington, Ealing and Victoria who experience pain and soreness due to the many hours spent at a desk or computer. Embracing the BackCare principle of making small changes, Posture Dynamics advise that even a small non-disruptive action such as standing up while talking on the phone or taking a short walk around the office every hour can relieve tension and make a noticeable difference to overall wellbeing.
