Do you live in continuous pain and discomfort of your back?

Do you worry about your health declining?                          

Back pain can range in intensity from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp or shooting pain. Problems with a back may be due to a back injury but can also be due to a variety of other things including disease, nutritional issues, muscle weakness and more. To ignore a back injury is a mistake. This course provides clear understanding about the causes and treatment of back pain. Also, learn how to maintain a healthy back. 


Learn to Recognise, Prevent and Treat Your Back Pain.

Three body systems interact to maintain a healthy back and to keep the body functioning without pain – the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. These systems are closely interrelated, so damage to one system can impact on the other systems. Determine the significant cause of back pain/injury and a suitable way of assessing safe and appropriate activity levels for the individual relative to the condition of their back.
