Caring for Carers: BackCare Awareness Week 2016
3rd – 8th October
Over 70% of the UK’s 7 million unpaid carers now suffer from back pain. They are at a greater risk of developing ongoing chronic pain, which is highly disabling in a third of cases and life-long for the majority as they provide care and support to an ailing or disabled family member, friend or neighbour on an ongoing basis.
Added to this is the danger of higher than usual levels of emotional stress; especially if they are caring for a spouse or close family member.
Because of this our theme for this year’s ‘BackCare Awareness Week’ is ‘Caring for Carers’.
