Have you been told by your doctor to lose weight to help improve your back problems but don't know where to turn to for advice? Are you sat thinking how can I get active and lose the weight when I’m afraid to move or it hurts to move?
Excess weight is one of the biggest causes of lower back problems. It creates a strain on the posture muscles as they fight against the extra pounds to keep your back in a strong postural alignment. Having excess weight, especially around your midsection can often cause the posture muscles to distort leaving the rest of the body trying to cope which is why pain is often felt in different areas of the back.
Our 6 week ‘Back Pain Prevention & Weight Loss Program’ helps you to become active and feel confident to move more freely. As the pounds start to drop you will start to feel more energetic and comfortable with every day chores, and eventually you will be setting yourself fitness goals that you thought you would never achieve.
