Find relief with our chiropractor in Bedford

Men are feeling the strain of middle age!
The modern man is certainly feeling the strain – working longer hours, tackling DIY and looking after the kids – its definitely taking its toll.
37 is revealed as the average age when men feel the strain according to consumer research from the BCA.
Findings from the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) found that a huge 4 in 5 (82%) men in the UK say they currently live with neck or back pain or have suffered in the past.
Nearly a quarter (24%) feel pain every day.
Moving heavy objects is the top trigger for almost half (47%) of men, however 41 per cent admit they don’t do anything to proactively look after their backs.

Like with most things, prevention is better than cure.
But if you are experiencing back and or neck pain for more than a couple of days, or are just feeling the strain of middle age - seek help!
