July 26, 2012 — This October, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) will once again lead the nation in celebrating National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM).
This year’s theme — “Find Your Game” — focuses on how doctors of chiropractic (DCs) can help people feel their best every day, regardless of age, occupation or fitness level; and how everyone can take steps toward optimal health, wellness, and functioning.
People have a wide range of goals. Some want to finish a local 5k road race, some want to have more energy after work and others want to play with their grandkids without pain. This year’s NCHM observance will let Americans know that all of these everyday victories are possible with just a few healthy lifestyles changes.
And if someone doesn’t know where to start, they’ll learn that chiropractic physicians can offer help by providing nutritional advice, exercise and lifestyle recommendations and natural approaches to managing injuries, aches and pains.
“Following this summer’s action in London, many patients will feel inspired to become more active in their everyday lives,” said ACA President Keith Overland, DC. “National Chiropractic Health Month offers us an opportunity to educate the public on how the services provided by doctors of chiropractic can help them feel their best, naturally.”
To kick off the celebration, ACA has created an online tool kit for ACA members, chiropractic associations, chiropractic colleges, Student ACA (SACA) chapters, and anyone who wishes to participate. The kit contains information and resources that will assist participants in planning and implementing NCHM activities at local and regional levels. Certain resources are exclusively available to ACA members.
