 “Doctor Recognized for Healthcare Contributions”

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI - Dr. Andrew Burns was the recipient of The Family Practice Excellence Award at a national chiropractic convention that was held in Atlanta, Georgia on November 3rd, 2007.  Dr. Burns was honored for his commitment to providing and promoting holistic health care to families in St. Louis.                                                                                                     
    Over 100 chiropractors were in attendance at the weekend conference that featured two of the world’s most renowned speakers and educators in chiropractic (Dr. Eric Plasker and Dr. Cheryl Langley).  Among the topics discussed at the conference was the latest information on pediatric chiropractic care.  “The demand for holistic, natural healthcare is soaring in the U.S. and abroad as scientific research has begun to support its safety and insurance providers have expanded their coverage,” said Dr. Burns.
    Chiropractic is one of the top five career choices for Americans in the new millennium and is one of the most sought after forms of health care amongst consumers.  In fact, nearly half of all Americans make visits to chiropractic offices and alternative health care providers accounting for over $27 billion dollars of the annual gross national product.
    “Regular chiropractic care boosts the body’s natural immunity,” said Dr. Burns.  Not only has chiropractic been proven to increase immune cell production in HIV patients, but also according to Dr. Burns, patients who receive chiropractic care make an average of 30% fewer visits to traditional medical doctors.  “The days of prescribing a pill for every social and physical malady are over,” said Dr. Burns, “and families are returning to more traditional and time tested forms of healing.”        
    In fact, nearly 80% of employer health plans now contribute to chiropractic care according to a 1999 study by the New York based consulting firm, William M. Mercer Inc.  For more information on how chiropractic can help you and your children maintain your health naturally, without the need for drugs, call Body Balance Chiropractic at #636-717-0600, located at 910 Brookwood Center in Fenton.
