Santa Barbara Chiropractors Set Wellness Example at Charity Events

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 29, 2012) - Chiropractors from the Advanced Chiropractic Group in Santa Barbara are setting a wellness example for the community by participating in and supporting fitness events that promote healthy living and also benefit worthwhile charities. The doctors hope to demonstrate that exercise can be part of a fun and beneficial rehabilitation program. Some of their patients have been involved in a serious auto, workplace or sports injury and may be facing a long course of therapy and rehabilitation. The chiropractors have found that it's often helpful to have them get involved in events outside their day-to-day treatment routine, and having a goal to work towards can be tremendously helpful in the rehabilitation process.

As an example of his dedication to leading an active lifestyle and supporting charitable foundations, Dr. Michael Hergenroether participated in the 29th Annual Fukamaki Golf Benefit. While the doctor wanted to demonstrate that golf can be an excellent therapy for lower back pain, he was also pleased to participate in an event that benefitted children and adults with disabilities who are served by the Exceptional Children's Foundation.

Dr. James Cochran volunteers chiropractic services to participants and spectators at various marathon events as his way of showcasing the many benefits of chiropractic care, proper nutrition, fitness and exercise. He was recently at the 26.2 mile Avon Breast Cancer Walk which raised funds to provide medical care to cancer patients regardless of their financial situation and to support leading research teams in their ongoing search for a cure. He was also at the Carpinteria Triathlon, which is a benefit event for the city's Parks and Recreation youth programs. Proceeds from the event helped provide scholarships and equipment for programs such as Junior Lifeguards and ocean recreation programs.

Commenting on his involvement in the charity events, Dr. Cochran said, "I see many patients at the office who come to us seeking chiropractic care, spinal manipulation and back pain treatment. While these treatments are very effective at reducing or eliminating the causes of pain, I also want patients to realize that whole body wellness should be a priority. By maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, they can help themselves lead a happy and pain-free life. I'm glad to set an example for good health by supporting these activities and thrilled they benefit so many worthwhile causes."
