HELPING DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Biz news for Dec. 15, 2009
Ronald Branvold, DC tells us that Susanville Chiropractic Clinic will be offering adjustments for a $20 cash donation today, Dec. 22 to raise money for needy families in the area. “We are not billing insurance today, so we are offering an adjustment for existing clients and free X-rays with an adjustment for new clients on this one day in order to raise money for those less fortunate during the holiday season,” according to Branvold. If you know a family who needs help you can submit a written nomination and drop it off at their office this week. So if shoveling snow has left you with a pain in your spine, get an adjustment and do a good deed today.
