The Joint Helps Raleigh Get its Rear in Gear
There's nothing like participating in a good cause, and The Joint Chiropractic Southpoint did just that over the weekend as it participated in the annual Get Your Rear in Gear event produced by the Colon Cancer Coalition.
It was another example of The Joint reaching into the community for a worthy cause.
"This is a great opportunity for the community to show their support for colon cancer awareness and screening," said chiropractor Dr. Todd Wegerski.
A 5K walk and fun run on N.C. State's Centennial Campus, Get Your Rear in Gear events are executed wih the help of local volunteers who are passionate about ending this preventable disease through increased screening and encouraging individuals to take control of their own health.
In some ways, that's like The Joint Chiropractic's "health care on your terms" approach to routine chiropractic care that provides improved overall health by freeing the spine and the all-important nervous system of restrictions.
Such events bring together colon cancer survivors, families and caregivers, medical practitioners, the running community, and local businesses to address the Centers for Disease Control's top two priorities for the disease, so funds raised through the event go to awareness and screening -- as well as prevention programs nationwide.
