Best Car Seats for Back Pain

Ford claims the new Ford Focus will give relief for back pain sufferers due to the optional comfort seats for the driver and front-seat traveller.

The seats adjust in eighteen ways to add support and comfort – earning Ford Focus the seal of approval from Aktion Gesuner Rücken e.V. (AGR), a German group movement for healthier backs.

To obtain the seal, the seat should be able to adapt to the person in their sitting position, instead of the person adapting their position to the seat. The Ford Focus is the 1st vehicle to receive AGR recognition.

Osteopathy – Treatment Possibility for Spinal Curvature/Scoliosis

Scoliosis affects 2-3% of youngsters age 10-16 years. A recent literature review found that manipulation, mobilisation, and soft tissue techniques can help. These treatments are ordinarily provided by Osteopaths. For this reason Osteopathy is an effective treatment to help pain and mobility in patients with Scoliosis. Michael and Joanna routinely use spinal adjustments, mobilisation and soft tissue techniques to treat scoliosis. We also advise on lifestyle modifications and home based exercise treatment so you are in very safe hands. You may also like reading our Sciatica, Back Pain, Adjustment & Scoliosis pages .
