Apex Chiropractic celebrates Ohio Drug Free Pain Management Month!
The Ohio State Chiropractic Association has announced September as Ohio Drug-Free Pain Management Month. The OSCA worked with Governor Kasich’s Office to celebrate the contributions that non-pharmacological health care professionals have made to patients all over Ohio.
This month celebrates those health care practitioners who utilize non-drug treatments, while raising awareness on the dangers that prescription drugs can present. This month also celebrates alternative health care options including chiropractic, acupuncture, nutritional support, massage therapy, exercise and lifestyle changes.
“This is another great step towards raising awareness of the alternatives to pharmacological care. We are happy that Governor Kasich and his administration acknowledge the importance of drug-free pain management and are grateful for his support,” said OSCA President, Dr. Jerrold Simon . “We hope more state officials continue to acknowledge the importance of non-pharmacological care, including chiropractic, and continue to push for increased parity, awareness, benefits of utilizing these vital health care professionals.”
