Area Organization Highlights Subluxation Dangers to Promote Spinal Health Awareness.....

Nashville, TN- The Tennessee Chapter of the Universal Chiropractic Association (T-UCA) has announced plans to highlight the dangers of undiagnosed chronic spinal subluxations during their 2018 Spinal Health Awareness Week, which will run from May 14th though May 20th.

Agnes Grumph, a retired chiropractor from Knoxville and recipient of the T-UCA Lifetime Achievement award, will be sacrificed as tribute to the Innate during the Spinal Health Awareness Week closing ceremony

"The spinal subluxation is one of the most overlooked factors in poor health," chapter president Frank Grimes, DC explained. "You may go years, even decades, thinking that you are fine, and then one day it all falls apart. It makes obesity, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle look like a day at a yoga retreat."

According to experts like Grimes, a spinal subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity. If present, these changes can influence organ system function and even general health by impairing the communication between the brain and every cell in the body. And general health has been implicated in a vast array of medical conditions, from musculoskeletal complaints like acute lower back pain to high blood pressure and even genital scrapies.

The theme of this year's Spinal Health Awareness Week is "Chiropractic - Spinal Subluxations Are Bad? Yes, They Are!" Grimes and the members of the T-UCA chapter hope to educate the public about the dangers of hidden subluxations and the benefit of frequent spinal health examinations starting from an early age. "It's always better to prevent a problem from happening in the first place than to wait until health begins to fail. And there is no better population to focus on than children because they can look forward to decades of optimum health under our care."

Spinal Health Awareness Week will take place at the T-UCA headquarters in Nashville, with a variety of fun and educational activities planned for each day of the event. Chiropractic practices from around Tennessee will take part, setting up booths for educational outreach and providing free food and drinks for visitors. Some local chiropractors will also take part in entertainment activities as well as the ritual sacrifice of Agnes Grumph, winner of the T-UCA award for Lifetime Achievement. The tribute of Grumph's vertebral column, spinal cord, and cerebrospinal fluid to the Innate will ensure another year of access to the healing power of chiropractic adjustments.
