Back Pain Pathway
Birchwood Medical Centre is backing the Cheshire and Merseyside Back Pain Campaign.
Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle is also supporting the campaign by adding her voice to an animation put together as part of this new health campaign which is aimed at the better management of back pain. The animation is now available to view https://youtu.be/nrtCtEITzeE
Patients are being asked to follow 7 Golden Rules if they experience back pain as part of the campaign led by The Neuro Network - a collection of NHS organisations, voluntary sector, patient and carer representatives who have come together to make changes that benefit neurological and spinal patients.
Low back pain is the leading cause of work absence throughout much of the world, placing an economic burden on the nations, governments, families and the individuals themselves.
