What we do:

BackCare aims to significantly reduce the burden of back pain by providing information and advice to all people and organisations affected by back pain.

We fund scientific research into the causes, prevention and management of back pain.

Back pain is a major health issue costing the country and the health service billions of pounds every year. Sickness absence currently costs the UK economy £15bn, musculoskeletal disorders are one of the leading causes of sickness absence.

We believe that by working together with other organisations, we can help prevent back and neck pain, which has a significant impact on more than 80% of the UK population.

One of our members said “I love what the BackCare team are doing, in trying to create a central resource for patients, to give impartial evidence based information that can help them back to health as fast and effectively as possible.”
