Millions of us in the UK suffer from back pain which can affect work, family and leisure time.
When back pain occurs, we may be unwilling, or even frightened to move because it hurts, but backs were made for moving and the latest advice from expert bodies such as NICE tells people to keep mobile with gentle exercise.
Mentholatum is committed to helping people take an active part in managing their own health and wellbeing, so they have developed Mind Your Back, an easy-to-follow back pain management and prevention programme. Mind Your Back’s five simple S.T.E.P.S. - which can be followed in your own time and at your own pace, alongside a healthy lifestyle, will help you not only manage back pain, but help prevent further problems.
Too much sitting can weaken our back muscles, soMentholatum have selected five simple stretches to increase mobility, reduce stiffness, improve circulation and help take back pain away – backs are made for moving! No need for gym gear or any special equipment – all you need is you. Whether it be at your desk, at home or even on your daily commute – these can be done anywhere.

As always, people who have not been active for a while should be advised to check with their GP and to start any new activity slowly.
