Vincentians benefit from free chiropractic service

Approximately 5,500 Vincentians from all walks of life benefitted from free chiropractic services recently, as a team of chiropractors from the US based organization Chiromission Inc visited St Vincent and the Grenadines from March 10 to 14.

The team consisted of 10 doctors of chiropractic {{more}}and six volunteers from Canada and the United States of America. This visit marks their sixth consecutive mission to St Vincent and the Grenadines.

“These chiropractors close their private practices for several days annually and cover all of their expenses for travel to St Vincent and the Grenadines, so that they can help Vincentians live healthier lives,” a release from the local organizers said.

Chiropractic sessions were held at various Government departments, including the Ministry of Transport and Works, Customs and the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA). Other sessions were held at Police Headquarters, the School of Nursing, Prisons, the Music Centre conference room, Campden Park, Gomea, Vermont, and at primary and secondary schools in several locations throughout the island.

Dr Nikoleta Alexander headed the team which was hosted by the Medical Relief Association (MRA), a local nonprofit organization headed by Mr Fidel Caesar. The chiropractors returned to their homeland on Monday, March 16, after a day of fun on the Grenadine island of Bequia.
