    The Prevalence of Low Back Pain in the UK Low back pain is one of the most common non-life threatening health problems in the UK. It not only creates a huge personal inconvenience and hindrance to individuals, but it also affects the UK financially and as a national community. According to a survey published back in 2000, almost half of the adult population in the UK reported occurrences of low back pain lasting for a minimum of 24 hours during the year. Two further reviews were conducted, one of which focused on the elderly and the other on adolescents, both of which identified high numbers of these populations suffering with low back pain. It appears from the research that the number of people with back pain increases with advancing age, starting in school children and peaking in adults of 35 to 55 years. Additional findings suggested that back pain was just as common in adolescents as in adults. From these studies it can therefore be estimated that four out of every five adults will experience some form of back pain at some stage in their life. It can therefore be predicted that in industrialised countries such as the UK, up to 80% of the population will suffer with back pain at some stage in their life.

    Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to help improve both the physical and/or emotional state of a person. The oils are derived from plant extracts, and their scents and properties can be used to benefit a person’s well-being. In more recent year’s aromatherapy has been found to help sports performers and exercisers alike to physically and emotionally prepare for, complete and recover from exercise and sporting activities. Aromatherapy oils are powerful and work in many different ways on many different levels; physically, emotionally and mentally. Aromatherapy massage can therefore be extremely helpful when trying to become mentally energized for exercise or for relaxing afterward. There are a range of fragrances and blends from essential oils which can be used to help before exercise to help focus, during exercise to improve performance or after exercise to relieve tired, aching muscles. Below are some aromatherapy combinations to help with different aspects of sports preparation, performance and recovery. All can have a very positive effect on the body and are all most effective when combined with massage and good hydration. If this is of interest to you consider an aromatherapy course to enable you to offer advice and massages to clients.
