Standard Process Inc., Foot Levelers Sponsor National Chiropractic Health Month 2013

Key Supporters of Chiropractic Profession Once Again Back Public Awareness Campaign  

Arlington, Va.—The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) today announced that Standard Process and Foot Levelers will help to raise public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic services by sponsoring National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) in October 2013.

Longtime supporters of the chiropractic profession, Standard Process—manufacturer of nutritional whole food supplements—and Foot Levelers—a provider of individually designed Stabilizing Orthotics and other health care products—are as well known for their philanthropy as they are for the products they offer. This will be the second year that both companies sponsor NCHM.

NCHM, ACA’s nationwide observance (held each October), promotes a healthy lifestyle enhanced by chiropractic’s natural, whole-person, patient-centered approach to wellness and pain relief. This year’s NCHM theme—“Discover Chiropractic: Get Vertical!”—focuses on helping people get off the couch or out the office chair to stand or move more each day.  

“Spending time out of our chairs is essential to living a truly healthy life, so I am excited about partnering with the chiropractic profession to get everyone vertical,” said Kent Greenawalt, CEO and chairman of Foot Levelers. “National Chiropractic Health Month is a valuable opportunity to work with ACA to promote the benefits of physical activity to overall health and wellness.”

Standard Process President Charles C. DuBois said, “Hearing from patients who improved their quality of health with nutrition and chiropractic care strengthens my resolve to work with the chiropractic profession. We are honored to join the ACA in its effort to raise public awareness of the benefits that chiropractic care and nutrition can provide.”

“Standard Process and Foot Levelers are perfect partners for ACA in its efforts to promote an active and healthy lifestyle. These companies strive to improve and fuel every step people take, literally,” said ACA President Keith Overland, DC. “National Chiropractic Health Month celebrates healthy, active lifestyles—that are enhanced by the services provided by chiropractic physicians.”

ACA offers an online tool kit for chiropractic physicians, state chiropractic associations, chiropractic colleges, Student ACA (SACA) chapters and anyone who wishes to participate in NCHM. The kit contains information and resources that will help in planning and implementing NCHM activities at local and regional levels. Certain resources are available exclusively to ACA members.
