The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series that ran at the end of July out of Portsmouth drew over 130,000 spectators. Even better, a Home Team win with Land Rover Bar skippered by Sir Ben Ainslie taking the honours.
Here at Homewood our chiropractors treat a fair number of yachties suffering from various ailments, most commonly back and neck problems.
Of course you don’t have to be a yachty to experience back and neck problems.
Unfortunately back pain is more common than you may think with estimates indicating that 4 out 5 of us will suffer some form of back pain at some stage of our lives.
A common cause of back pain
Poor posture has become a common cause of back problems and our lifestyles are increasingly not helping it.
From spending too long in front of our computers, to being slouched on the sofa watching TV, to driving longer distances all play a part in making us slouch and putting pressure on our spine.
Let’s Straighten Up UK
If you are worried about your posture then all is not lost!
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) have developed a simple yet effective 3 minute exercise programme that is designed to help improve your posture and help reduce the risk of back pain.
All you need to do is incorporate this into your daily routine – just like brushing your teeth.
The exercises can be adapted to suit individual capabilities. However, you should always discuss any new exercise programme with your GP, chiropractor or other health care practitioner before you start.
If you are suffering from back pain or have other concerns please get in touch with us as we offer a lot of help and advice to get you back up and running as soon as possible. You can contact us at Homewood Chiropractic Clinic on 01329 280 283 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
