For seven days, 32 chiropractors along with their staff and some family, provided care to the people of the country of Panama. The group, known as Chiropractors Restoring Energy Worldwide (CREW) was in Panama for the seventh time since the program began in 1997. Chiropractors provided care in civic gymnasiums, government offices, privately owned factories and bus terminals, retirement centers, orphanages, malnutrition homes, and prisons.

The mayor of Panama City, Juan Carlos Navarro, addressed a large crowd that had gathered the Roberto Duran Gymnasium to receive chiropractic adjustments telling them that the municipal government had sponsored the chiropractic activities in order, “to offer one a better quality of life.”

On previous missions to Panama, CREW has been responsible for providing chiropractic care to more than 300,000 people in a single week. To date, it is estimated that more than one million upper cervical chiropractic adjustments have been received by Panamanians as a result of these missions.

The people of Panama always respond in large numbers and with great appreciation for the chiropractic care provided to them. During these missions, chiropractors are given access to every possible location, so that those in need of care are able to receive it.
