Executive Director’s Message

October 2017 is Texas Chiropractic Health Month. That’s right … Gov. Greg Abbott signed a proclamation recognizing Texas chiropractors and the unparalleled care you provide to your patients. It shows the respect that our state’s top leader has for our profession and he acknowledges that chiropractic is a solution to the nation’s healthcare crisis.

It’s our job as a community to spread the word. So, I encourage you to do the following:

1) Like and follow the Texas Chiropractic Association Facebook page, and follow @TexasChiroAssn on Twitter. Both are open forums and TCA members, non-members and fans of chiropractic are invited to join.

2) Find the Texas Chiropractic Health Month post and be sure to “like” it and share it on your Facebook page and retweet it on Twitter!

3) Look for positive PR from TCA on social media and on our website. It’s yours to use.
