 Why does regular physical activity help back pain?

  • Develops and strengthens muscles
  • Improves and maintains joint flexibility
  • Improves bone density
  • Improves fitness
  • Improves mood
  • Release natural chemicals that reduce pain


Good to know that…

  • Back pain is common but is rarely due to any serious disease
  • Even when it is very painful that usually doesn’t mean that there is any serious damage – hurt does not mean harm
  • Bed rest for more than one day or two is usually bad for you
  • The quicker you get going the faster you get better
  • Regular exercise and staying fit helps your general health and your back
  • Flare-ups are common
  • You have to get on with your life – don’t let back troubles take you over – be a winner

The classes are FREE for 20 sessions and £2.10 thereafter and more information about how to enrol is available by calling the number detailed above or emailing

If you are unsure about your ability to take part in exercise please speak to your local health practitioner.
