PLoS ONE. 2008;3(6): 2406 WIN! WIN! WIN! When professionally conducted, Community Spinal Health Checks represent: a Win for the Community a Win for Chiropractic a Win for the Australian Spinal Research Foundation It is generally accepted that only 12% of the Australasian population have ever visited a Chiropractor. This unique statistic highlights the staggering potential to increase the awareness and usage of chiropractic care as an important contributor to health and wellness in the community. Community Spinal Health Checks provide an ideal opportunity to introduce members of the general public to the benefits of Chiropractic in a safe, professional and non pressured environment. A greater awareness of chiropractic care and its benefits is created with the public, which leads to greater direct participation with the chiropractic industry. Recipients of Community Spinal Health Checks are invited to consider a voluntary donation of $20 to the Australian Spinal Research Foundation. Given that only 12% of the Australasian population has experienced chiropractic care, the opportunity to increase the number of patients visiting individual chiropractic practices within a specific locality is immediately apparent. The Australian Spinal Research Foundation has prepared a kit for conducting Community Spinal Health Checks and is seeking registrations from those practices genuinely interested in conducting health checks in the community to support Chiropractic, spinal research and their practice. Simply call the Foundation on 07 3808 4098 to sign up and have any questions answered. The Foundation is totally committed to ensuing Community Spinal Health Checks are conducted in a professional manner and within the Code of Conduct and guidelines of the various Registration Boards. The Foundation will immediately disassociate itself from any Community Spinal Health Check not conducted within these guidelines.
