Keep Active

When you have back pain it is crucial for you to keep moving.

Movement is something you can do that contributes to your back getting better. Part of that process is allowing time for the body's natural healing to occur and this will be much better if you continue to move, even if this causes some discomfort.

It will not do any harm - remember, the spine is designed to move. So download our exercise advice sheet to the right for more information about how you can get moving back to health.
