Understanding the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP)
Thursday, January 15, 2015 03:57 PM

It has been eleven years since all major, national chiropractic associations signed two separate proclamations under the title, "Pledge of National Public Relations Unity."

The first document proclaimed that all associations put a stop to individual and unsuccessful public relations campaigns and support one comprehensive campaign. The second document indicated that the F4CP would retain a reputable public relations agency and provide them the authority to implement an effective program without interference.

Included within the signed proclamations was the following:

"THEREFORE, we solemnly declare and resolve that: We have one unified message: to get the general public to 'go see a chiropractor.' We agree to not start any public relations effort on our own."

Representatives of the following groups: ICA, ACA, COCSA, ACC, FCER, NBCE, FCLB and a number of colleges, signed the proclamations.

The public relations program acting under the F4CP, established by Kent Greenawalt, received the endorsement of the united group to pursue the established collective goal.

Australian Chiropractors Help Indian Rock Breakers and Tea Pickers
Thursday, January 15, 2015 01:44 PM

Women in the north-east Indian city of Siliguri constantly put their bodies under strain: dragging rocks from the local river, smashing them by hand into stones, and carrying heavy baskets to a truck that takes the load for use as road base.  They and other women in the north-east of India who work as tea pickers, also carrying heavy loads, had little hope of relief until a group of Australian chiropractors made a trek to help out.  It is now an annual event and this year the clinics treated 2,200 people over two weeks.

Perth chiropractor Mike Brett, who volunteered his time and expertise for the December trip, said the women had a lot of spinal issues due to the hard work. "It's predominantly both a tea plantation area so a lot of these people are tea pickers and that's quite backbreaking work," he said.
