In support of Back Care Awareness Week, Firefly has produced a 'Taking Care of Your Back' leaflet to help promote good back care.

Back pain is a common problem.

However special needs parents may be more at risk of back pain because of the amount of lifting and moving of equipment that they do on a daily basis. 

This helpful leaflet contains tips on how to look after your back as well as 7 ways to help promote good back health.

If you have experienced back pain, please seek advice from your GP or local physiotherapist who will provide you with ways to treat your back pain.
