New research carried out for Southern Cross Health Society shows the overwhelming majority of New Zealanders suffering from joint, neck or lower back pain are not doing anything about it(1).
80% of kiwi’s have or will experience neck, back or joint pain(2), with 1 in 5 in the workplace currently experiencing pain. Only around a quarter of these people are taking any action to improve it(3).
Joint, neck and lower back pain is a large financial burden on employers as it accounts for one in four sick days with desk workers(1).
