North West named 'back pain capital of the UK': Here's 10 of the best-rated physios and chiropractors in Preston according to Google Reviews

People from the North West suffer from back pain more than any other region in the UK, The British Chiropractic Association has found.

The study also found that in the North West:

- Over a third (35 per cent) of people have had to take up to five months off work due to their back and joint pains.

- Sixty per cent of people have lived with bone and joint pain for longer than 12-months

- Almost a third (30 per cent) haven't seen a GP to treat their bone and joint pain as they struggled to get an appointment.

As part of this year’s Back Care Awareness Week (October 3-7), the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) is empowering people to look after their backs and joints through simple lifestyle changes.
