WHEREAS, Chiropractic is a healthcare practice based on the musculoskeletal system and its disorders, which affect the general wellness of the body. Doctors of chiropractic practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that can include the manipulation of the spine and joints to reduce pain, restore mobility, and maintain health; and

Doctors of chiropractic, through regular interactions with patients and their communities, and in collaboration with other healthcare providers, are instrumental in teaching people about the conservative-care-first approach to health; and
WHEREAS, Increased public awareness of chiropractic is important to conservative healthcare treatment and to containing increasing healthcare costs, and Ohio Chiropractic Awareness Month will be instrumental is this worthy mission; therefore be it
