Is back pain the leading cause of time off work?

Nuffield Health information evenings

Wednesday July 8 at 7:00pm

Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital is holding a complimentary information evening on back and leg pain, commencing with a presentation at 7pm by Orthopaedic Consultant Mr Guy Barham. The event will be held at Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital.

Mr Barham will also be available to discuss different treatments tailored to individual needs.

Mr Barham said: “Research has suggested that 9.96 million working days were taken off due to back pain last year, a staggering amount! I mostly see two groups of people, the younger to middle-aged often suffering with slipped discs, and those approaching their 70’s, who often suffer from arthritis, or spinal stenosis – the narrowing of space between the backbone, which puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.”

“Many over the counter painkillers are often not enough to treat these conditions, so we advise that sufferers should seek treatment from a specialist.”

While the open evenings are complimentary, spaces are limited so booking is essential. Attendees are welcome to bring a friend or family member. To find out more or to guarantee a place please call: 01202 702830.
