Back pain

I have had back pain for a few years. I have seen a specialist and a physio but nothing seems to help. I don't want to have to rely on medication. Has any one else found something that relieves or even prevents the pain without taking tablets?

Summer Uni Enfield for Kids

Hi, just wondered if Enfield council were going to bring back summer uni, it stopped in 2013 and held classes for children from 7-17, it has classes like jewellery making, spray painting, business, massage and Printing and usually each course ran for a day up to a week or two from 9am through to the late afternoon and it was free! Is there anything similar I can see Barnet have courses for the kids, ok not free but good prices from £10

Dog walking exercise group

Dog walking exercise group, Hi I'm looking for a group of people who want to keep fit with their dogs. I live near forty hall and walk my dog there regularly, mostly in the evenings from 6pm and weekends around 8:30am. I've started doing some exercise while walking but think it would be more fun with others.
