Chiropractic Healthcare Month – October 2021

Chiropractic Healthcare Month – October 2021

Governor Pritzker has issued a proclamation to designate October 2021 as Chiropractic Health Care Month in Illinois. The proclamation highlights the benefits and importance of chiropractic care throughout the State. The proclamation also recognizes the dedication chiropractic physicians have for their patients. Every year approximately two million patients in Illinois visit chiropractic physicians.

The recognition comes at a time when we have made great strides in increasing access to chiropractic care, such as the inclusion of chiropractic in the Medicaid program, as well as continuing to advocate for the pending Medicare amendment that would provide coverage for many additional services.

States all around the country, along with the American Chiropractic Association, will celebrate October as Chiropractic Health Care Month.  To show support and raise awareness for the recognition of Chiropractic Health Care Month, we encourage you to post this proclamation in your office. Together we want to promote the benefits of chiropractic care and its important role in improving musculoskeletal health, development, and patient wellness.

In the coming weeks, we will be announcing other promotional materials to celebrate Chiropractic Health Care month.
