Take the Strain Away with Back Aids from NRS Healthcare

Back pain is one of the most common medical complaints affecting a large portion of people in Britain, with many suffering in silence. Recent studies outlined the prevalence of back pain amongst the people of Britain and it can be one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Even with continued advances in medical science, there is no magic cure and many can only hope to dull the pain with painkillers and therapy. Here at NRS Healthcare we understand the burden that chronic back pain can be but we believe that with the help of innovative equipment and tools within our supportive back aids range, the strain can be lessened and quality of life enhanced.

It is estimated that 1 in 10 people suffer from lower back pain globally and can become more common with increasing age although back pain does not discriminate and it can affect people of all ages and from all walks of life. These results might be considered quite shocking but you will find that most people are affected by back pain whether it is their own or the suffering of someone they love.

The Good News!

The good news is there are ways and means to alleviate some of the pain that does not involve pain relief medication. Our range of back aids are designed to make everyday tasks less painful for those with back pain.

Back Support and Comfort

If you have ever experienced back pain you will understand that not only can this affect your mobility, it can also become a bone of contempt even when you’re relaxing in your favourite chair or even whilst you sleep in your bed. This can have a detrimental effect on your health as good sleep, as well as rest, is tantamount to recovery and a healthy lifestyle. NRS Healthcare provide a wide range of support and comfort cushions designed to contour to the users body in order to achieve a suitable position that not only provides comfort but allows for a better posture. Currently the bestselling product within our range of supportive back aids is the adjustable back rest. This particular back rest allows users to comfortably sit up in bed without any curvature of the spine.

In addition, and in the interest of providing back pain sufferers with comfort whilst resting we offer a selection of foot stools and leg rests. Leg rests and foot stools help elevate the legs in order to take the pressure off the lower back.

Easy Reachers

Sometimes the simple task of reaching down to retrieve something from the floor can be a daunting task and requires much strain. This can amplify back pain and can even be impossible for back pain sufferers. This is where our collection of easy reachers proves invaluable. Easy reachers are simple yet ingenious daily living aids that allow you to retrieve small items from low or high areas that would require straining to otherwise retrieve. Featuring a handle that operates the grabbing mechanism on the end, easy reachers are simple to use.
