This October, chiropractors, therapists and back experts across the globe are joining together to build awareness about spinal health and offer simple solutions for back pain. Each year, the American Chiropractic Association spearheads an effort to bring back health issues to the forefront. This year’s focus touches on the growing availability of holistic back pain remedies in the face of the U.S. opioid epidemic. Chiropractic services can be key as a first option for treating and preventing back pain without the need for prescription drugs. Read more on the ACA’s efforts this month here.

You can participate in the effort by scheduling your annual visit to your chiropractor this month. To get involved in the conversation online, use the Chiropractic Health Month hashtag “#Chiropractic1st” when posting on social media.
