National Chiropractic Health Month: Raising Awareness and Promoting Wellness

October is National Chiropractic Health Month, and this year’s theme is “Relieve, Restore, Resume”. Doctors of chiropractic (DCs) help people relieve their pain, restore their function, and resume their lives through an evidence-based, patient-centered and non-drug approach to MSK health.  It’s the perfect opportunity to raise awareness and educate people about musculoskeletal health, the benefits of chiropractic care and promote pain management and overall wellness. 

The Importance of Chiropractic Care

1 in 2 adults in the United States are affected by a musculoskeletal condition.

Chiropractic care is crucial because it offers a non-drug, non-invasive approach to pain management and overall wellness. By focusing on the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can help alleviate pain, restore function, and improve overall health. Regular chiropractic care empowers individuals to take charge of their health by promoting awareness and facilitating early intervention if any issues are found.

What Can You Do: Encouraging Chiropractic Care

Encouraging chiropractic care is essential as it provides a safe and effective alternative to traditional pain management methods. Regular chiropractic visits enable healthcare providers to identify and address musculoskeletal issues, often before they become chronic problems. Encouraging individuals to seek chiropractic care empowers them to take charge of their health and potentially prevent or alleviate pain and discomfort.

Creative Ideas for Promotion

  1. Conduct engaging and informative workshops that promote proper posture, ergonomics, and healthy lifestyle choices. These interactive sessions empower participants to proactively prioritize their health and well-being.
  2. Educational Campaigns: Develop engaging infographics, animated videos, or interactive quizzes that provide valuable information about chiropractic care, prevention, and treatment. Share these across social media platforms and educational institutions.
  3. Foundation for Chiropractic Progress Monthly Marketing Roadmap: The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress provides an online Monthly Marketing Roadmap that includes resources such as the latest research, promotional materials, and marketing strategies to support chiropractic awareness campaigns.
  4. American Chiropractic Association Campaign Toolkit: The ACA offers a campaign toolkit that includes resources to raise awareness of National Chiropractic Health Month in clinics and communities. The toolkit may contain promotional materials, social media content, and other resources to help chiropractors effectively promote the importance of chiropractic care during the awareness month.
  5. Official hashtags: #FrontlineforPain #RelieveRestoreResume #NCHM23

Patient Consent to Communication of Personal Health Information (PHI) through Standard SMS/Text Message and/or Email

Welcome! Your healthcare provider has partnered with HealthAware to help guide you through your care plan.

Who is HealthAware?
HealthAware provides health support programs (HSPs) delivered via standard SMS/text message and/or email. Your HSP is under the direction of your healthcare provider and is designed to support you in your health journey by providing education information related to:

  • Your health support program
  • Behavioral prompts/check-ins
  • Assessments/progress reports
  • Appointment reminders
  • Other health related messages or programs pertaining to my health support program

These HealthAware programs are for educational purposes only. They cannot provide, and are not intended as a substitute for medical care. The programs are automated, and therefore not actively monitored. In the event that medical care is needed, please call your healthcare provider or 911.

Why do I need to accept this patient consent?
HealthAware uses standard SMS/text messages and email messages that are not encrypted to communicate information with you about your HSP. Consequently, there is a risk that an unauthorized third party could view the information being transmitted.

To whom does HealthAware disclose my PHI (Personal Health Information)?
HealthAware only discloses PHI to you and your healthcare provider. HealthAware does not disclose PHI to any other party, such as marketing or sales organizations.

By clicking “accept” on a web page, clicking a link that is clearly labeled as a means of indicating consent, or replying “yes” to my consent prompt via text message, I agree to the following:

I hereby consent and state my preference for HealthAware to communicate with me via SMS/text message and/or email regarding various aspects of my health support program (HSP), which may include my PHI, behavioral prompts/check-ins, assessments and progress reports, appointment reminders, and other health related messages or programs pertaining to my health support program.

I understand that standard SMS/text messaging and email are not confidential methods of communication and may be insecure. I further understand that, because of this, there is a risk that standard SMS/text messaging and email regarding my medical care might be intercepted and read by a third party.

I may revoke this consent in writing except to the extent that HealthAware and/or my healthcare provider has already made disclosures in reliance upon my prior consent. If I do not accept this consent, or if I later revoke it, the commencement, continuation, or quality of my treatment will not be affected, but my enrollment with the HSP delivered by HealthAware will be terminated.
