Arlington, Va.- The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and chiropractic physicians nationwide are raising public awareness this month about the importance of joint health and the vital role physical activity plays in keeping joints healthy and pain-free during National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM).
 
lThis year's campaign--"Discover Chiropractic: Get Vertical!"--focuses on getting off the couch or out of the office chair, and standing or moving more each day. As part of the observance, ACA has loaded www.ChiroHealthy.com with information for the public on how chiropractic services fit into a healthy lifestyle and simple steps they can take to enhance their joint health today.
 
Most people know someone with joint pain, and joint replacement surgery--particularly involving hips and knees--is commonplace. What many do not know is that simple lifestyle changes can in some cases help prevent the need for this type of surgery and keep joints healthier longer.
 
"If the beautiful fall weather across much of the country isn't incentive enough to Get Vertical, remember that a few healthy lifestyle changes-over time-can potentially mean the difference between being scheduled for joint replacement surgery or remaining active and pain-free well into one's golden years," said ACA President Keith Overland, DC. "Chiropractic physicians can help maintain a patient's quality of life by providing exercise and lifestyle recommendations, nutritional advice, and natural approaches to managing aches and pains."
 
Sponsored by ACA, National Chiropractic Health Month is a nationwide observance held each October. The event helps raise public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, whole-person, patient-centered approach to health and wellness. 
 
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2013, is the largest professional association in the United States representing doctors of chiropractic. ACA promotes the highest standards of patient care and professional ethics, and supports research that contributes to the health and well-being of millions of chiropractic patients.
