The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) estimates that an amazing 10,000 people visit a BCA chiropractor with DIY related injuries each month, with laying patios and digging the second most common cause of injury.
Back strain and knee pain are the most common form of ‘horticultural’ injury reported but also at risk are the shoulder and neck areas, the forearms, wrists and fingers.
