Back Pain

About three in 4 people have one or more bouts of back pain. Most soon ease and are not due to serious back problems. In most cases the usual advice is to keep active, and do normal activities as much as possible. Painkillers are helpful until the pain eases. Chronic (persistent) pain develops in some cases, and further treatment may then be needed. If simple painkillers aren’t doing the trick then book to see a GP.
