No One Wants Back Pain for Christmas!

With only 5 weeks to Christmas we often see an increase in the number of patients coming to the clinic with back pain in November and December.

There are a number of reasons for this increase in our expert opinion:

  1. Increased Work Hours: With higher work demands and deadlines needing to be met prior to the holiday season
  2. Increased Stress: Due to work, preparing for Christmas at home or away and picking out gifts for your loved ones
  3. Less Activity: Our usual Irish weather of colder, darker evenings means that people will be less inclined to go out walking and partake in their usual fitness routines.
  4. Doing the Wrong Things: People doing things which their bodies are simply not used too: Pulling and dragging Christmas trees, decorations and large presents out of attics and around shops.


Here’s our Christmas Mobility Program to help Prevent Back Pain:

  1. Foam Rolling (3 Mins)
  2. Reachbacks (2 sets of 10)
  3. Cats & Dogs (2 sets of 7)
  4. Hip Flexor Stretch (3 x 30 second holds)
