National Chiropractic Health Month: Discover Chiropractic ... Find Your Game
National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) kicks off in October 2012 with the theme of “Find Your Game!”
“Find Your Game” means achieving optimal function at any level of fitness. That includes everyone from athletes to office workers, young and old. ACA encourages everyone to use the month of October to resolve to be your best, feel your best, and perform your best.
If you are a patient or member of the public, please visit our public website www.chirohealthy.com, which features tips and information to keep you healthy and pain free!
Help Spread the Word!
ACA offers a wide range of resources to help doctors of chiropractic spread the word about NCHM among their patients and in their communities.
There's no one way to participate in National Chiropractic Health Month—you can tailor the resources to fit your own personal preferences and time constraints. Click here for ideas.
Sample Tweets and Facebook Posts
Use your social media presence to spread the word about NCHM and chiropractic in general.
Asking your local government to issue a proclamation honoring NCHM is a great way to raise awareness of how chiropractic care can help your patients feel their best everday regardless of age, occupation or fitness level; and how everyone can take steps toward optimal health, wellness and functioning. Follow these simple tips for submitting a proclamation.
