Oct.
15, Carmichael, CA.  The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising
awareness about chiropractic care, is pleased to celebrate National
Chiropractic Health Month
(NCHM), a nationwide awareness campaign held each October sponsored
by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).

This
year, the F4CP will help to drive public education by promoting its campaign
deliverables – press releases, ads, public service announcements, and print
advertorials – that feature prominent spokespersons expressing the value of
chiropractic care.

“The
goal of NCHM is to help the public understand chiropractic care and how it can
positively impact their health,” shares Keith Overland, DC, president,
ACA.  “With the support of F4CP spokespersons, such as Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice and US Army Brigadier General Becky Halstead
(ret.), our profession has the opportunity to educate and encourage the public
to begin taking steps in the right direction – toward better health.” 

Each
year NCHM embraces a new theme.  This year, ‘Discover Chiropractic: 
Find Your Game,’ aims to inform the public about how DCs can help people to
feel and function their best every day, regardless of age, occupation or
fitness level.  The following small steps are recommended to help
jumpstart healthier habits: alleviate aches and pain that sideline exercise and
strive for 20-30 minutes of daily activity, stay well rested and substitute
junk food with more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. 

Today,
over 78
million adults
in the U.S. struggle with obesity and its affiliated
complications – chiropractic care can potentially offset this epidemic by
helping people become more active and make better nutrition choices. 
Former ACA chairman of the board and current F4CP board member, Mike Flynn, DC,
shares: “NCHM provides the public with resources to learn and engage in
healthier choices.  It is essential that everyone takes a pro-active
position in restoring our nation’s health.”   

Echoing
the encouragement of Dr. Flynn, to be more diligent in achieving good health,
is F4CP spokesperson, Jerry Rice, who shares, “The game of life requires the
edge that chiropractic care provides.”
