10/19- Wellness Workshop: Lynchburg Chiropractic Spinal Screening

12:00-1:00 pm | Terrace Conference Room, Jerry Falwell Library

Regular, vigorous physical exercise, a healthful diet, and sufficient rest are not the only components of a comprehensive program of health and well-being. Regular chiropractic care is an additional key factor. By identifying and correcting nerve interference, regular chiropractic care helps your digestive system to efficiently utilize the food you are consuming. By reducing neck and backaches and pains, regular chiropractic care helps you achieve a more restful, reinvigorating sleep. Join us as we learn lifestyle choices that contribute in maintaining a healthy spine and nerve system that helps support all the other things you are doing. Sign ups are available online. Registration will remain open until the start of the event as space allows.

  • Receive a free spinal screening and see your results
