Last week there was news regarding Life Chiropractic College West and a Mission Trip to Cambodia. The trip featured Life West faculty, alumni, and college interns traveling to provide chiropractic care in Cambodia. Iris J. Murillo, public relations manager for Life Chiropractic College West, emailed a few photos that were taken during the trip. I wanted to share them here.
Chiropractors, Chiropractic Interns, and lot’s of smiles
I love that people take the time to get photos during mission trips, we get so consumed in providing care that often times some of the little things (like stopping to take pics) get overlooked.
Hands On Chiropractic Care
Imagine being able to get that Life Giving Adjustment for the very first time? Awesome stuff! Depending on the groups organizing the mission trips, chiropractors may be providing full spine care, cervical spine only care, or a combination of cervical seated care and table full spine care (perhaps depends on ratio of chiropractors to people being served). In past trips I’ve participated in (like Costa Rica) much of the adjusting was seated cervical care. I like the idea of having people on a table but that can be a long day when serving on missions.
Chiropractors that participated in this mission will remember their experiences forever, and they’ll have fond memories of the smiles shared by people they met during their journey. If you want to get out of your head space and serve for the sake of serving, there’s nothing quite like a mission trip to motivate you. Congrats to all that invested the time and energy to make the trip a success.
