After witnessing a dramatic shift in treating younger patients over the last two decade I became dedicated to help reverse this negative trend occurring in our younger generation’s health and wellbeing. For everyone- Health is our first wealth. Our younger generation need to be fit for life from the start -This was the evolution of Kids Backs 4 The Future CIC.
¼ of young people suffer from young regular/daily back pain (Backcare.org.uk 2015).
These alarming statistics highlighting the crisis in children’s spinal health and well being, continuously fuels our preventative mission and drive to reduce and prevent unnecessary injury and help our children develop good positive health behaviours.
We are committed to helping make healthy postures in young people second nature, not a reaction to pain.
