Backcare (formerly The National Back Pain Association) is a national charity that was set up by Stanley Grundy in 1968. Its Patron is HRH the Prince of Wales.
For over 50 years Backcare has been dedicated to educating the public throughout the UK and further afield in ways of preventing and alleviating back pain. The charity aims to significantly reduce the burden of back & neck pain by providing information, guidance and advice to all people and organisations and those affected by such pain.
Back pain is a major health issue costing the country and the health service billions of pounds every year. Musculoskeletal disorders are one of the leading causes of sickness absence, which it is estimated costs the UK economy £15bn annually.
We believe that by working together with other organisations, we can help prevent back and neck pain, which has a significant impact on more than 80% of the UK population.
