National Chiropractic Health Month: Discover Chiropractic ... Get Vertical
National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) kicks off in October 2013 with the theme of “Get Vertical!”
Get Vertical focuses on the importance of joint health at all stages of life and what people can do to keep their joints functioning properly. ACA encourages everyone to use the month of October to get off their couches and office chairs, stand up and move! In other words, Get Vertical!
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.
