1 in 3 people in the UK will experience the agony of back pain at some point in their life. The Work Foundation Report estimate that 12.5 percent of all days lost at work are due to back pain. It can be an absolutely miserable condition and often traditional medical approaches such as opioids & pain killers, steroid injections and surgery fail to bring satisfactory relief. They can actually make a patient’s situation worse.
Lockdown has seen a surge in chronic back pain due to hours spent crouched over laptops and lack of normal exercise. Cannabis Medicines are gaining increasing interest as an effective and side-effect free treatment for this pain, when traditional methods have failed to help.
Back Care UK, the National Back Pain Association, has been educating the public on ways to alleviate and help prevent back pain for over 50 years. The organisation, whose Patron is HRH Prince of Wales, provides practical and emotional support to people living with back pain through education, information and advice. Back Care helps people who have back pain whether the cause is through injury, musculoskeletal disorders such as Scoliosis, Axial Spa, or Spina Bifida or as a consequence of another underlying health condition including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease or Cancer.
Back Care and Integro Medical Clinics who specialise in Cannabis Medicines, have joined forces to produce an informative and potentially life changing event webinar that will be of interest to anyone suffering the misery of back pain or health care providers
