‘I just bent over and my back went!’
This is a saying I hear a lot. Someone simply reaches for a piece of paper or bends to pick a toy off the floor and their back goes. It can be very frustrating and hard to understand why something so simple can cause so much pain.
Usually however the cause can be a build up over time with that last reach being the final straw. Think of you spine a bit like a paper clip. You can bend it forwards and backwards a number of times no problem and then all of a sudden it just snaps and this can be the same with the ligaments and muscles around the spine or with the discs.
Before the back finally goes sometimes you can get a few twinges. Think of these as warning signs and look back on things you have been doing recently. Try to change the everyday tasks you do like loading the dishwasher or how you watch television to try and minimise the pressure on the spine. Make sure you take regular breaks to walk around as the back has a relatively poor blood supply and so gets its oxygen from you moving around.
At Attend2Health we offer a free 15 minute chat to see if we can help or to give advice. If you do get any twinges why not come and see us to see if we can prevent your back from going.

I have been meaning to do this for a while. I would highly recommend Attend2Health in Buntingford. All of the staff I have … More met are professional, caring and friendly. I have arthritis in my neck and was suffering with pain. I went to see Ginelle in June 2023 and have been regularly seeing her since then. She corrects the alignment of my spine, deep massages the muscles and straps me up - ready to take on the world again! I would highly recommend Ginelle if you are in need of an osteopath.
