Looking after your health is key to avoid getting injured or ill.
You can reduce your risk of back pain with simple lifestyle changes such as doing regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, maintaining a proper posture, sleeping well and being aware of and respecting the physical limitations of your body.
If you experience back pain, don't ignore it. It could be a sign of a more serious condition. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and what you should do to find and treat the cause. Most of our standard plans offer comprehensive cover for diagnostic tests, physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture and other treatments which can help relieve and manage back pain. Please refer to your Table of Benefits for specific details of your cover.
