National Chiropractic Health Month 2021: Keep Moving! 

During National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) 2021 this October, the American Chiropractic Association, its members and doctors of chiropractic nationwide will encourage people to “Keep Moving!” and striving to add more movement into their day.

Many have learned the hard way over the past year that lack of movement and physical activity can lead not only to weight gain but also achy joints and other musculoskeletal conditions. Movement is the answer! Finding ways to move our bodies more enhances not only our physical health and stamina but also our mental health and feelings of well-being. Taking care of our health, staying active and keeping a positive outlook help us all to keep moving through challenging times.

During NCHM 2021, chiropractors will share information on the benefits of movement, recommended physical activity levels, injury-prevention tips and advice on how people can incorporate more movement into their daily lives.

What is National Chiropractic Health Month?

National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) is a nationwide observance held each October. The event helps to raise public awareness of the importance of musculoskeletal health and the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, whole-person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness.

About the American Chiropractic Association

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is the largest professional chiropractic organization in the United States. ACA attracts the most principled and accomplished chiropractors, who understand that it takes more to be called an ACA chiropractor. We are leading our profession in the most constructive and far-reaching ways—by working hand in hand with other health care professionals, by lobbying for pro-chiropractic legislation and policies, by supporting meaningful research and by using that research to inform our treatment practices. We also provide professional and educational opportunities for all our members and are committed to being a positive and unifying force for the practice of modern chiropractic.
