Dr Louise Hampton DC is a Doctor of Chiropractic who graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2004 with a BSc (HONS) degree in Chiropractic. Louise has sat on the council of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and is a fellow of the BCA.
Over the past 14 years, Louise has treated hundreds of patients, easing their pain and making them feel better. Louise has found the people that have benefited most from treatment have tended to be those who also tried to help themselves through exercises and little changes to their lifestyle as well.
Usually, back pain comes on gradually, and it can be little things people do over time that add up to the pain. And it can be small things, like the exercises and pointers in this book, that help alleviate the pain.
Louise wanted to become an author as she was keen to write a book to help people suffering from back pain. She was keen for the book to be easy to understand but include lots of different ways to help the back, as not one exercise works for everyone.
Back pain can be a scary experience and sometimes you feel like the pain will never go. Louise wanted to write a book to reassure people that the pain can go and to give people many ways to help, from exercises to products and information this book should help you get through the pain and in the long term keep your back strong.
Back pain is usually caused by a mixture of things, both physical and mental. Posture has a part to play along with bending or lifting.
This book provides you with useful information about the anatomy of the spine, so you can understand where your pain is coming from and can be more aware of how it can be aggravated.
Throughout life, staying active is extremely important, so if pain is preventing you from doing this, you must seek help.
Louise wishes you all the best with your healing journey.
