Back & Neck Pain
“A man is as young as his spine.”
– Joseph Pilates
Are You Suffering From Back or Neck Pain?
It’s been estimated that between 70-90% of people will suffer from back or neck pain at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, many of these people will experience recurring episodes and some may even have persistent problems. Thankfully, the vast majority of back and neck pain is rarely a sign of something serious and can be helped with the right treatment and management.
At The Health Formula, we understand the impact back or neck pain can have on your quality of life. From limiting your ability to work or get a good nights sleep, to preventing you doing the activities you love and simply enjoying life, back and neck pain can be a downright inconvenience!
