Mr. Kannan, a tailor by profession lives in Thenur village close to our Madurai unit of yarn division in Tamilnadu. There are three people in the family including a son studying in college. Kannan is the sole breadwinner and works very hard at the age of 50 to sustain his family.
Since his profession demands sitting in the same position for a long period of time, he developed severe pain in his spinal cord. At times the pain was so intense that he was unable to use the tailoring machine for stitching.
At first he visited the Primary Healthcare Centre at Samayanallur and sought treatment. But he had to discontinue it because he was spending a lot of money on transportation and it was time consuming as well.
