Free Back Care Class

Learn how to look after yourself at work and in you home

We strongly believe that prevention is better than cure, so we offer a free back care class. During this 45-minute informal session, we explain how to take care of your spine, giving practical advice, tips and exercises.


The aim is to help you manage your condition and prevent it recurring. The advice will help you identify early warning signs and hopefully improve your quality of life.

Often, your condition can affect the whole family. You are welcome to bring them, any friends or carers along & they can have a complimentary spinal health check as well.

  • Get the most out of your chiropractic care & speed up your recovery
  • Understand the 3 types of stress & their effects on health
  • Make changes to accept a new or improved level of health
  • Learn how to look after your spine at home and at work
  • Understand the difference between sickness and well-being
  • Enter the process of reaching optimum health

Using a model spine, we outline the importance of the nervous system, protected by the spinal column and skeleton, and explain what happens when bones move out of place, trapping or pinching a nerve. This is called “subluxation” and causes the pain which brings most patients into the clinic.

The many causes include stress, incorrect posture, bad sleeping positions, standing, working or sitting, bending, carrying or lifting incorrectly; sudden movements, accidents and falls; sneezing and coughing; gardening, flying or traveling; sports; the wrong mattress, pillow or bed; occupation & lifestyle; medical conditions such as gallstones, kidney stones, osteoarthritis or osteoporosis; disc problems, wear and tear, pregnancy and obesity.

At the end we give out information sheets and some exercises to do at home.

The Back Care Class is held at our Edgware & Mill Hill Clinic & runs on alternate weeks at 7pm
