November 4, 2009 — “Chiropractic care provided me with a better quality of life,” stated Brigadier General Becky Halstead (Ret.) at the opening session of the 2009 Chiropractic Symposium and Expo (CSE), which took place Oct. 30 – Nov. 1 in St. Louis, Mo.
CSE 2009, a new educational event offered by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and its specialty councils featured a variety of lectures and symposia on popular chiropractic specialties such as sports injuries and physical fitness, chiropractic pediatrics, occupational health, diagnosis and internal disorders, and chiropractic forensics.
Halstead spoke to a crowd of about 250 doctors of chiropractic, sharing her personal story of how chiropractic care helped her recover from debilitating chronic fibromyalgia, and why she believes the benefits of chiropractic care should be extended to all members of the military.
Halstead recalled how she learned that chiropractic care enables patients to take an active role in their recovery and ongoing health. She also underscored the importance of working together to expand its availability.
