The Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) works to enhance public access and education to chiropractic practice. In the wake of last year’s Hurricane Harvey the TCA, in conjunction with Parker University and Texas Chiropractic College (TCC), created the initiative Chiropractors Helping In Relief Operations (C.H.I.R.O), dedicated to helping chiropractic doctors in their time of need. The ultimate goal of C.H.I.R.O. is to help doctors effected by a disaster to get back to caring for patients.

Initially started as a response to Harvey as a way to offer assistance to Texas Doctors of Chiropractic whose practices were affected by Hurricane Harvey, the C.H.I.R.O. continues as a way to support those who may be affected by catastrophic events in the future. The 2018 hurricane season began June 1 and the TCA takes this opportunity to attention to hurricane preparedness.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted a “near to above normal” level of hurricane frequency. The most important thing you can do as hurricane season approaches is to have a plan, and to get yourself, your family and your home prepared.

Researchers examined the mechanism of injury for concussion in children aged 0 to 17 years seen for at least one clinical visit with an International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modificationdiagnosis of concussion between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2014.
