Chiropractic and a #PainFreeNation Infographic
Each October, the chiropractic profession celebrates National Chiropractic Health Month and offers the community important and relevant health-related information. This year, we’re supporting the 2015 theme, #PainFreeNation, along with the American Chiropractic Association and chiropractors across the nation.
The Painkiller Epidemic
You may have read or heard about the current drug crisis in the United States. Stories featured in Time Magazine, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and all major publications, have grabbed Americans’ attention on what the CDC is calling “the worst drug epidemic in history.” Prescription pain medications are being prescribed, used and abused at an alarming rate. At the root of this epidemic is a lack of options for pain management and countless Americans who are suffering from chronic pain and being left with nothing but a prescription to mask the pain.
We’re here to change this.
This infographic, The Painkiller Epidemic: How Chiropractic Can Fix It, walks you through the stats and facts surrounding this issue and outlines chiropractic’s important role in solving the problem.
