April 9, 2009 — The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (www.yes2chiropractic.org), a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of chiropractic, announced today that retired U.S. Army General Officer (G.O.) Becky Halstead has agreed to serve as its spokesperson and share with the public her positive experiences with chiropractic care.
Halstead served 27 years with the United States Army and is the first female in U.S. history to command in combat at the strategic level by commanding the highest level organization for logistics (3rd Corps Support Command) in the Combat Theater of Iraq. She is also a recipient of the 2007 national Women’s History Project Generations of Women Moving History Forward.
Halstead says that the hands-on, active care of doctors of chiropractic and their advice on a healthy lifestyle are essential to our military men and women.
She says that time spent with her chiropractor is better than any drug she has ever had prescribed, noting, “Listening appears to be a major tool of my chiropractor’s doc kit in order to get to the root cause of my pain and discomfort without just masking the problem with drugs with all their side effects.”
