National Chiropractic Health Month 2020
When it comes to your health, get “Active and Adaptive"!
With the theme “Active and Adaptive,” National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) 2020 will focus on helping people adapt to the new normal and maintain musculoskeletal health and function in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
After months of sheltering in place, many people are still practicing lifestyle changes necessitated by the pandemic to reduce their exposure: avoiding crowded public areas and working from home, choosing car trips instead of air travel, ordering food and supplies online, and avoiding gyms and other enclosed interior spaces where people gather.
As a result, many people are moving less, and some are experiencing pain as a result. NCHM 2020 will encourage the public to adjust to the challenges of staying fit and pain free with a smaller lifestyle footprint by becoming more mindful of movement and posture and by highlighting tips and strategies to help them adapt in healthy ways.
