Governor Daniels Proclaims October 17-23 as Indiana Chiropractic Health Week
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – October 18, 2010 – Governor Mitch Daniels proclaims October 17-23 Indiana Chiropractic Health Week, a statewide campaign sponsored by the Indiana State Chiropractic Association (ISCA) (www.indianastatechiros.org), which recognizes chiropractic professionals as preventive care providers with expertise in optimizing health. This year’s theme, “Why Weight? Get Healthy,” highlights doctor-of-chiropractic approved prevention and treatment options for patients dealing with obesity — a condition affecting more than 60 percent of adults in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control.
“This is an important opportunity to educate the public on the general health benefits of chiropractic care, which include so much more than simply the expert hands-on care that DCs are so well known for,” comments Dr. Jeff Yoder DC. Obesity can have detrimental effects on the musculoskeletal system, causing back and neck strain or even contributing to osteoarthritis – painful symptoms that sideline obese people from physical activity. In addition to pain relief and prevention, doctors of chiropractic are trained nutrition specialists who can offer natural ways for patients to combat obesity.

In observance of Indiana Chiropractic Health Week, Dr. Jeff Yoder DC is dedicated to educating the public on the many benefits associated with chiropractic care by offering the following healthy living tips:
Follow a balanced diet – emphasize vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans
Eat less harmful food – reduce intake of sugar, soda, fats and processed foods
Drink plenty of water – try for several glasses a day
Exercise regularly – aim for 20 – 30 minutes, three to four times a week
Stay positive –the right attitude will lead to greater success.
