In the UK absenteeism from work, due primarily to back, neck and muscle problems in 2013, was in the order of 31 million days. A similar picture exists across the economies of the EU, including the UK, with the cost in 2013 estimated at around €240 billion (£200 billion). Read more from the BBC here.
