Back Care UK

Visitors to The Back Pain Show – 19 & 20 May, St. Andrews Stadium, Birmingham – will be able to find out with a simple scan if they are at risk of osteoporosis.

backpain showOsteoporosis is a common systemic disease in which bone becomes fragile due to the reduction of bone tissue and is more prone to fracture particularly in the hip, spine and wrist area. One in two women and one in five men in the UK will suffer a fracture after the age of 50 and there are three million people in the UK alone suffering from osteoporosis.

The scan itself takes approximately two minutes and is a simple and painless procedure that uses a very low dose of radiation. The cost of this service is usually £100.00, but in order to raise osteoporosis awareness and give people the opportunity to know whether they are at risk, the organisers are offering a FREE scan at the show in exchange for a donation to the national charity – Backcare.

Come along to the show at St Andrews Stadium, Birmingham, on 19 & 20 May, and book your free scan at The Backcare stand. You can register for free entry plus book a place at numerous talks and presentations by going to

With over 40 exhibitors displaying everything from pain relief therapies to specialist clothing and furniture, the show is a must for all those suffering from back pain.
