Here at Spring active we are a back pain information resource site. We are not Medical professionals but aim to have many helpful articles from Health and Fitness professional regarding back health on our site.
Back pain is common and affects around one-third of the UK adult population each year. Fortunately for most people the pain, gets better over a few weeks or months and they soon return to their normal activities including work. In a small percentage of people however, the pain continues for longer than 3 months and this is known as chronic, persistent or long term back pain.
The evidence suggests that the best approach to help people with long term back pain is to provide a combined psychological and physical treatment programme, so that they are able to return to activities that are important to them.
