CC Newsletter October 2022


Dr. Demetrius Anderson

Almost eight in 10 Americans have an episode of lower back pain at some point in their lives. Chronic back pain can result in lowered productivity, which can adversely affect your quality of life. National Chiropractic Month, observed every October, emphasizes alternative methods of treatment versus drugs, which yield better results.

How You Can Observe National Chiropractic Month:
1. Support Medicare Equality
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) advocates federal legislation that would allow patients to receive Medicare reimbursements.
2. Educate yourself
No matter what kind of treatment you get, it is always important to make an informed decision. Read up on the benefits and drawbacks of painkillers as well as joint manipulation.
3. Schedule an appointment with a chiropractor
Chiropractic care can help prevent injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Use National Chiropractic Month as an opportunity to make an appointment.


Benefits the U.S. Economy: 
Episodes of lower back pain can result in a $100 billion drain on the economy each year. Most of these costs are associated with lowered productivity and lost wages. National Chiropractic Month can help people get back on their feet faster.
Non-narcotic Help
: The misuse of over-the-counter painkillers is a major problem in this country. Moreover, opioids are less effective than spinal manipulation in providing long-term relief from back pain.
Awareness of the Benefits of Chiropractic Care
: Several studies in recent years have pointed to the benefits of chiropractic care, including its preventative benefits.National Chiropractic Health Month
