Florida Chiropractor, Dr. Alan M. Creed, one of the leading authorities on instrument adjusting in the chiropractic profession, gave a seminar, in March 2004, to the chiropractors of the Chiropractic Services Unit (CSU) of the 244th Medical Clinic of the New York Guard (NYG). Dr. Creed, himself a US Army veteran and a Past-Commander of a veterans post, donated his lecture to the NYG as an act of appreciation for the service the Guard rendered to the participants of the post-9-11 operations. Having read that the CSU had rendered over 200 chiropractic treatments each day during the crisis, he felt compelled to contribute his share to the overall effort.
Dr. Creed was welcomed to Camp Smith by LTC Patrick Delamere, DC, the NYG Chief of Chiropractic Services and MAJ Floyd Miller, DC, the Deputy Chief. In their welcoming remarks, LTC Delamere and MAJ Miller told Dr. Creed, “It is a proud day in the history of the CSU to host his seminar. The chiropractors of the NYG were the first fully-commissioned chiropractors in any military organization, and the fact that we could host such a prestigious seminar is a further sign that chiropractic and the military are to be partners in the 21st Century.”
Dr. Creed’s seminar stressed the various techniques of specific spinal correction with emphasis on the established protocols for evaluation, treatment, and assessment of the soldiers’ health issues.
The seminar was sponsored free of charge by Foot Levelers, Inc., of Roanoke, VA, and Impac Instruments of Salem, OR. Foot Levelers and Impac provided Dr. Creed’s transportation and lodging and further provided the instruments and visual aids that made the seminar possible. Continuing Education Credits, as mandated by New York State law, were provided by Texas Chiropractic College.
Dr. Alan Creed presents a nation-wide seminar series, Boost Your Practice: Bridging Techniques, Styles & Technology, which is approved for Continuing Education Credits by the Texas Chiropractic College.
