Iraq and Afghanistan Military Get Complimentary Help for Aching Backs
Date:2/19/2009

Veterans returning with back problems can benefit from the "CINN Gives Back" program. Spine specialists at the Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch are offering complimentary consultations for Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 19, 2009 -- As the U.S. military speeds up its withdrawal of troops from Iraq, more then a fourth of all soldiers will return suffering not from bad battle wounds, but from bad backs. It's estimated that more than 150,000 active and inactive Iraqi servicemen struggle with back pain. In Afghanistan, American soldiers are reporting similar problems.

The pain is often caused by lifting supplies, carrying heavy backpacks, crouching in trenches and sleeping on unsupported cots. That means a lot of war veterans will be seeking help for aching backs.

These harsh realities prompted the Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch (CINN) to offer a new complimentary program to military personnel who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and who suffer from back conditions. A recent Iraq and U.S. pact mandates that U.S. troops will leave Iraqi villages by the middle of this year and leave Iraq completely by 2011.

"CINN Gives Back" program provides each soldier with a complimentary consultation by some of the nation's foremost neurosurgeons and pain specialists. It also includes a complimentary pain relief session with a certified physical therapist. If surgery or alternative therapy is needed, CINN will work on a case-by-case basis to provide necessary treatment
