Don’t Miss These 2013 Summer Chiropractic Events

You know it’s summer when local parents all bring their kids in on the same morning for a chiropractic adjustment. While kids are out of school and excited to have some summer fun, chiropractors will be having summer fun of their own, and hopefully including their families on a few chiropractic centered vacations. I have put together a list of summer chiropractic seminars and events that should not be missed. Choose one, or several, and get reconnected with your colleagues.

No Chiropractic Schools in Los Angeles

There are numerous factors to consider when choosing a chiropractic school, I’ve covered that in several previous posts, and I will share several links below. First I want to address the question of Los Angeles and chiropractic schools, let’s begin with a bit of local chiropractic history.
