OSCA Announces Drug Free Pain Management Awareness Month
(Columbus, OH) The Ohio State Chiropractic Association is pleased to announce September as Ohio Drug-Free Pain Management Month. The OSCA worked with Governor DeWine's Office to celebrate the contributions that non-pharmacological health care professionals have made to patients all over Ohio.
This month celebrates those health care practitioners who utilize non-drug treatments, while raising awareness of the dangers that prescription drugs can present. This month also celebrates alternative health care options including chiropractic, acupuncture, nutritional support, massage therapy, exercise and lifestyle changes.
"The OSCA believes that Drug Free Pain Management Awareness month offers a great opportunity to educate the public and legislators on the importance and effectiveness of non-pharmacological healthcare, especially chiropractic," said OSCA Executive Director, Dr. Brandy Spaulding. "Governor DeWine has been a great ally of the chiropractic profession and non-opioid alternatives in healthcare, and we are happy that we have been able to work with his administration once again to designate this month as Ohio Drug Free Pain Management Awareness Month.
