The Back Pain Show – 19 & 20 May 2017
After a decade, The Back Pain Show has moved from Olympia London to St Andrews Birmingham, to give access to sufferers from the Midlands and the North of England. This iconic, two-day show is a hub for sufferers to meet doctors and therapists who provide treatment and manufacturers who supply both preventative and therapeutic equipment.
There are many causes of back pain including crush fractures of the spine which are usually caused by osteoporosis. These fractures are amazingly painful and take many months to ease. For a small donation to the charity BackCare – www.backcare.org.uk – at-risk visitors to show can have a two minute DEXA scan to determine their bone density. With lifestyle changes they can significantly decrease the risk of this disabling condition. The scanner uses the same amount of radiation found in a banana!
Lectures for both the public and professionals will be given by leading researchers in the field of back pain. Don’t miss this opportunity to book the professional lectures and fulfil CPD requirements. Both public and professionals can register for the event and book any of the talks and lectures, free of charge, at www.thebackpainshow.co.uk.
For manufacturers, this is the once-a-year opportunity to show products to both the general public and professionals. With easy access (compared to the nightmare of London venues) and free parking, you should book your stand now before they are all snapped up as the number of stands is limited.
The show will host the AGM of the BackCare charity on Saturday afternoon. All members are welcome to come and meet the trustees and members of the research, publications and executive committees. Membership will be available at the charity’s stand at the entrance of the show. Come and support our unique charity supporting those with back and neck pain and preventing thousands of people from developing these disabling conditions.
