Backcare Awareness Week October 8th-12th 2012

The charity Backcare has launched “Builder’s Back Pain”, a new campaign during BackCare Awareness Week.  This focusses on the construction industry, which generates 30,000 new back injuries every year.
Back pain doesn’t kill, it tortures – destroying lives and livelihoods; it accounts for half of all chronic pain and is the leading cause of sickness absence from work.
The financial burden of back pain is enormous; EVERY DAY it costs the NHS £1.3 million, EVERY DAY it costs £13 million in Disability Benefits, and EVERY DAY it costs the UK Economy £37 million. That’s a staggering £19 BILLION every year!
Here at Hayes Chiropractic we will be supporting this initiative by offering our free 15 minute advisory consultations to see whether or not chiropractic would be able to assist in your recovery.
