As part of the national Backcare Awareness Week the British Chiropractic Association have released a report stating over a fifth (22%) of women who have struggled, or currently struggle with back or neck pain say they do so on a daily basis and a quarter (24%) have suffered for over 10 years. Are you one of the statistics? Back Pain Woes for Women in their 20’s goes on to say that the most common back or neck pain triggers for women are:
• Lifting and carrying
• Bad posture
• Sleeping/ mattress
• Housework/ DIY
• Exercise/ sport/ physical activities
Housework / DIY and sleeping/ mattresses were more common triggers for women; while men were more likely to point to exercise as the cause of their back or neck pain. For both men and women lifting and carrying was the most common trigger.
