How Osteopaths Help with Back Pain?

Getting relief can be easier than you think

Back pain is becoming a common problem that can significantly hinder your daily activities and disrupt sleep. ​Especially since most of us are working from home now, sitting more in uncomfortable chairs/sofas and and exercising less. This can be coupled with neck and shoulder pain or headaches, particularly if one is using a computer. However, back pain has many causes and it is important to identify which to get the right kind of help.

  • Avoid prolonged sitting and get up for regular breaks if you do have to sit prolonged

  • Adjust your desk ergonomics, there are plenty of resources online to do so
