Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 20 Jul,2016

Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, is the acknowledged leader in the provision of state-of-the-art medical services in Eastern India. The pioneer of several cutting-edge treatment and care options, the hospital is happy to announce the launch of the Back Pain Clinic – organized especially to address the health challenges associated with a progressively sedentary lifestyle.

With the emergence of an increasingly deskbound daily routine, bereft of regular physical activity and exercises, back pain has assumed almost epidemic proportions in the country. Incorrect posture, excess body weight, improper lifting and a range of diseases and psychological conditions are some of the common causes behind this common complaint, known to affect about 80 per cent of all adults at some point their lifetime. A proper evaluation and diagnosis of the underlying cause, followed by medications, physical therapy and in some case, surgery, therefore constitutes an effective treatment regimen for back aches.

The Back Pain Clinic at Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, brings together a well-trained and experienced team of multidisciplinary specialists under one roof. Staffed by expert care givers and supported by capable personnel and world-class facilities, the clinic delivers and ensures the best outcomes for patients and their families.

We will continue to deliver on more such initiatives, which will only help us transform the entire healthcare paradigm of the country.”
