October is National Chiropractic Health Month

GREENVILLE — Greenville Mayor Steve Willman, along with the American Chiropractic Association have proclaimed October as National Chiropractic Health Month. According to the proclamation, the interest in and need for greater access to safe and effective non-drug, noninvasive approaches to pain management has increased. The CDC, in its drafted 2022 prescribing guidelines, also promotes diverse approaches and varied pain management solutions and specifically encourages use of non-drug therapies as a first line of treatment for acute, subacute, and chronic pain. Doctors of Chiropractic, who focus on the whole person with their non-drug, noninvasive treatments for pain management—most notably spinal manipulation—can play an important role in helping patients lessen their reliance on pain medications.

Attending the signing was Dr. Kristene Clark, owner of Johnston Chiropractic Clinic. Dr. Clark, who also earned post graduate degrees and is board certified in chiropractic rehab and chiropractic acupuncture, advises that good spinal health makes it possible for the entire body to function efficiently. Spinal health is essential to proper health and function throughout life. Doctors of chiropractic treat spinal misalignments. Proper spinal health and alignment allows the brain to better communicate to the parts of the body which promotes healing. This assures our nation of a more efficient and productive population. Every individual should be made aware of the benefits of spinal care and its effects on our health. Doctors of Chiropractic have contributed greatly to the better health of our community by providing quality health care.

Johnston Chiropractic Clinic is dedicated to providing quality care for citizens. Services offered by Dr. Clark include chiropractic care for the entire family, acupuncture, rehab and nutritional support. In honor of National Chiropractic Health Month, Dr. Clark will offer all first day services, scheduled by new patients during the month of October, for a $35 fee.
