Hamby Chiropractic & Wellness October Newsletter
Besides being the month of Halloween and Breast Cancer Awareness, October is National Chiropractic Health Month. National Chiropractic Health Month is a nationwide observance held each October. During NCHM, chiropractors educate the public about the importance of musculoskeletal health and raise awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, patient-centered and drug-free approach to pain management, pain relief, health, and wellness.
This year NCHM is particularly important because we have been living under the constrains of COVID-19. After months of sheltering in place, many people are still taking health precautions. Whether it's steering clear of crowded public spaces, working from home, forgoing air travel for car trips, ordering supplies online, or avoiding gyms and health clubs, people need a natural, hands-on, noninvasive, drug-free healthcare alternative to help them stay active and disease-free.
During National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM), which begins Oct. 1, doctors of chiropractic encourage the public to adjust to the challenges of staying fit and pain free during the new normal by becoming active and adaptive and being more mindful of their movement, posture and other strategies to help them adapt to a healthy lifestyle.
