NASHVILLE, TN

Governor Bill Haslam has proclaimed October 2014 as Tennessee Chiropractic Health Month and encourages all citizens to join him in this worthy observance.

In celebration, the Tennessee Chiropractic Association (TCA) is kicking-off the promotion of their “Step Forward with Chiropractic” walking campaign. TCA member physicians and staff are joining together to participate in the statewide campaign and encouraging patients, family and friends to log their steps throughout the month in an effort to improve the health of their communities.

Chiropractic practices are a great fit for promoting better health through the many benefits of walking, since they care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions, including injuries that may occur when starting a new active regimen.
They also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.

With nearly 1.4 million Tennesseans living sedentary lives as reported by the United Health Foundation’s 2013 America’s Health Rankings, the chiropractic physicians in
Knoxville, TN are excited to help our communities step forward and reap the benefits.
