A January 10, 2007 Business Wire release from the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has introduced an online “Health Seekers Calendar” designed to give those who use it, easy to follow health steps in 2007. The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic.
Dr. Gerard W. Clum, president of Life Chiropractic College West, Hayward, California, and spokesperson for the Foundation starts off by suggesting, “”Health and fitness related resolutions are common for many people, but these goals often are side-tracked by unnecessary and painful injury.” He goes on to note that many injuries are often totally avoidable, as they are in most instances the result of good intentions but poor planning.
“After a long period of inactivity, many people are too aggressive with an exercise regimen and should take their time in getting back to an exercise routine, otherwise, a routine-stopping injury is likely, making it even harder to get back on the right track down the road,” Dr. Clum insists. He continued, “One’s resolution and enthusiasm to initiate change are certainly the first step, but if these changes are derailed before results are seen or before they become permanent lifestyle changes, the likelihood of getting back on track is more remote.”
To help people get started on the road to being healthier, and to help them stay on track, the Foundation has introduced an online calendar, that they note is, “filled with simple, fun and enjoyable action steps to help individuals bring these four healthy living pillars into greater focus.” The calendar can be found on the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress website at www.foundation4cp.org .
