For many people, October is for celebrating Halloween, but there’s another important event this month. All month long is National Chiropractic Health Month 2017. If you have chronic pain or a recent injury and you’re on the fence about seeing a chiropractor for your symptoms, now’s an ideal time to do so.
What Is National Chiropractic Health Month 2017?
Every year, the American Chiropractic Association or ACA presents the National Chiropractic Health Month. October is always the designated month. The ACA will choose a theme that brings about awareness of various health and chiropractic issues, such as chronic pain, chiropractic care, and other holistic treatment options.
“Back to Basics” is the theme for this year’s National Chiropractic Health Month. This theme is centered around back pain, which can be debilitating.
According to the ACA, most patients who have back pain use opioid pain medications to dull their symptoms. This only provides temporary relief, though. Without treating the root cause of the back pain, symptoms will continue to persist. The pain may even get worse over time, becoming chronic.
By getting “back to basics” this month, the ACA seeks to teach ways to maintain spinal health and avoid injuries that could lead to spinal and other bodily pain.
There will be plenty of research available for medical professionals and civilians who want to inform themselves on chiropractic care, including how chiropractic techniques can improve the nervous system and musculoskeletal system.
