Standard Process Sponsors National Chiropractic Health Month 2016 

Arlington, Va. - The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) announced today that Standard Process Inc. will help raise public awareness of chiropractic services as a first line of defense against pain by sponsoring National Chiropractic Health Month 2016 (NCHM). This year marks the fifth time that the whole food nutrient solutions company will lend its support to ACA’s annual observance.

NCHM, held each October, promotes a healthy lifestyle enhanced by chiropractic's natural, whole-person, patient-centered approach to pain relief and wellness. This year's theme – #Chiropractic1st – encourages the use of chiropractic and other conservative forms of pain management before turning to riskier treatments, such as prescription opioid pain medications.

“We are delighted to support National Chiropractic Health Month and the #Chiropractic1st message,” said John C. Nab, DC, director of professional development at Standard Process. “In light of the epidemic of opioid overuse and abuse in the United States, it’s vital that patients understand there are drug-free approaches to pain management.”

"ACA is proud to partner with Standard Process on this important public health initiative,” said ACA President David Herd, DC. “We are thankful for the company’s continuing commitment to the chiropractic profession and the patients it serves.”
