Much has been written in the press recently about men, in some English regions, living longer than women. However, in Dorset we do better than that, with men and women beating the national average by two years.
This great benefit of our modern life has meant that we expect to live busy, fulfilling lives into a long retirement.
Being able to reap the benefits of a life time of work, places physical demands on the body. Golf and gardening require obvious levels of fitness and flexibility but sedentary activities also require a healthy spine and not one prone to back ache.
Looking after your spine earlier in life may help in the future. Don’t ignore those little niggles that you used to shake off in your twenties but in your thirties and forties seem to last that bit longer and effect you that bit more.
At the Trinity Practice, Shaftesbury the team led by osteopaths are experts in treating back pain and helping people to help themselves.
Don’t let those grumbling aches take over, call 01747851726 for an appointment or visit us at www.trinitypractice.co.uk
