On Friday 16 October 2015, we worked a day for charity. We put every patient's treatment fee into a pot and gave it to World Spine Care.
Why? Well, we know how debilitating it is to have back pain. To not be able to work or to do the things that you want to do because of your pain. Luckily, in this part of the world we can do something about it.
Sadly, in other parts of the world, people are not so lucky. They don't have access to the care that they might need. They can't pop to the chemist to get some painkillers. They can't use an ice-pack as they don't have a freezer. They can't have a hot bath to ease their aches and pains. They can't even pop to see their friendly, local chiropractor!
What's worse, for them, it's not just relief that they want. They need to be fit and active to be able get on with life. To grow their food, to carry their water, to build their homes and to care for their families.
However, there is help! World Spine Care is a global charity on a mission to improve lives in underserved communities through sustainable, integrated, evidence based, spine care. They aim to create a world in which everyone has access to the highest quality spine care possible.
So, that's why we donated every treatment fee to World Spine Care.
You can help too - we've got a collection tin in clinic so stop by and pop your pennies in. We care for spines everyday, not just on World Spine Day...
