Chiropractic reform movement expands into new types of advertising to spread the word of the risk of stroke with chiropractic treatment.

The Chiropractic Stroke Awareness Group (CSAG) has once again expanded its billboard awareness campaign into new areas like Meriden and New London, Connecticut. Now, for the first time, CSAG will be using a new and different mode of advertising.

Beginning May 28th a series of trucks started traveling through various cities and towns in Connecticut with the message "Are you aware there is a risk of stroke with a chiropractic adjustment?" These trucks will be on the road from 9am to 5pm five days a week.

"This is an exciting mode of advertising that will enable us to target areas that have not been reached before," said Britt Harwe, Founder of CSAG.

The first three trucks will concentrate in the Brookfield and New Milford area of Connecticut, a portion of the state that has not been previously reached by buses and billboards.

Victims of Chiropractic Abuse (VOCA), with the help of CSAG, is working diligently with legislators in the state of Connecticut to require chiropractors to not only give informed consent orally and in writing to their patients, but also to require chiropractors to provide a discharge summary to their patients after receiving a chiropractic adjustment. The discharge summary would include the signs of a stroke with instructions to seek emergency medical care if they should experience these signs.

"The sooner the patient receives medical care after experiencing signs of an impending stroke the better outcome the patients will have, perhaps saving them from paralysis and even death," said Janet Levy, President of VOCA. "Time loss can lead to significant brain loss."
