Back Pain - A modern day epidemic
“In 2003/4 back pain was the biggest cause of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs accounting for an estimated 4.9 million working days lost (Self-Reported Work Related Injuries (SWI)). This equates to 1 in every 6 days lost from work-related sickness absence, an average time off per worker of 19 days, and an estimated overall cost to the NHS, business and economy of £5 billion a year (source BackCare 2005)”.
This NHS blog from 2016 confirms how back pain is the "largest single cause of disability in the UK"
The British Pain Society confirms that chronic pain costs the UK billions of pounds (2018).

Train to become a practitioner
The diploma course is offered through Natural Therapeutics and is a blended course where you will study the theory at home and then attend practical workshops in Desborough in the East Midlands. All courses are taught by Carole Preen, who is the founder and leading practitioner of this therapy in the UK.
This is a very different therapy than anything else available. Why? Because the whole body is re-aligned every treatment, as opposed to only symtomatic areas being targeted. Further to this, peripheral joints can also be targeted if required with additional points. We do this so that not only the localised tissue is treated, but also any compensatory effects that may have occurred. This reduces recovery time and the need for ongoing adjustment and treatments.
Unlike manipulative therapies, there is no bone cracking or crunching and it is highly relaxing - most people drift off to sleep.
