Association of Chiropractors are using an unique service to volunteers and victims alike. Three days a week, area chiropractic doctors are providing free changes at a station at Calvary Baptist Church, 6100 Perrine Road
, Midland. MAC began offering chiropractic relief June 2 and expects to continue this donation forever. Up until now, about 10 chiropractors have actually provided their services.” MAC member medical professionals are stepping up to assist following the devastating flooding by donating their time and know-how to offer required services to front line employees and regional people. Chiropractors from across the state are devoted to assisting throughout this time of crisis,” stated MAC Executive Director Kristine Dowell in a statement.
Kim Langley, health supporter for Simmons Specific Chiropractic, in Midland, has actually been at the tent every day the adjustments are provided, signing people in. In current days, she has actually seen a minor uptick in visitors, a lot of whom with grievances of pains in the mid- and lower-back.
“We've extended it to necessary employees and volunteers for the flood and also for flood victims. Everyone's doing the same kind of work,” Langley said.
About five people showed up at the MAC tent soon after midday on Tuesday. Among them was Tina Romanick, of Midland, who came with a neighbor who informed her about the chiropractic relief. Romanick's basement buckled due to the flooding it sustained.
“My hubby does the lifting, I do the cleaning,” she said.
After guests check in, they are employed the order of when they showed up to consult with the chiropractic physician. After a quick preliminary examination, the chiropractic specialist will carry out a fast, simple adjustment, sterilizing the table after each visitor. In general, the procedure takes about 10 minutes.
Langley, who lives just down the street from Calvary Baptist Church, totally lost her basement to the flood. After doing heavy lifting and putting in long hours to gut out her basement, Langley values all the assistance given by volunteers.
“Being able to offer this service for them is just a fantastic thing. It feels truly good to be able to return,” she stated. “It's a stressful time for everyone and we want to help people feel the best they can in the midst of it.”
This donated chiropractic relief becomes part of the very first yearly ChiroCares National Giving Back Day, a humanitarian initiative spearheaded by the MAC, partnering with ChiroCongress and the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP). At the state level, the MAC motivated its medical professionals and their clients to contribute essentially to their local food banks through Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The initiative kicked off on May 19 and went through the month of May but continued forever after the destructive flooding in Midland and the surrounding locations. The MAC has motivated chiropractic practitioners not living locally to help flood relief through contributions to the Midland Area Foundation or the Red Cross.
Chiropractic relief is available from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in the Perrine Road parking area of Calvary Baptist Church, in Midland. Adjustments are complimentary of charge and no appointment is required.
