national chiropractic health month

October is National Chiropractic Health Month. During this month, several doctors, state and national chiropractic associations, and advocates of chiropractic care are coming together to raise awareness and promote the use of nonpharmacologic options for chronic pain.

Complementary and alternative medicine offers services that may be an important first line of defense against musculoskeletal pain and may in some cases lessen or eliminate the need for over-the-counter and prescription painkillers. This message is important for the public to hear due to the rising opioid use in the U.S. and subsequent abuse of opioid and non-opioid pain killers.

Burkhart and Chapp Chiropractic is excited to participate in this effort and will continue to offer drug-free, surgery-free alternatives to the Grand Rapids area
