DC Shows Appreciation To The New York Guard

PEEKSKILL, N.Y. - Alan Creed, DC, provided a free seminar for members of the Chiropractic Services Unit (CSU) of the 244th Medical Clinic of the New York Guard (NYG) on March 30, 2004, as a show of appreciation for their assistance after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. CSU chiropractors were on hand shortly after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, to provide hundreds of treatments to individuals helping rescue and recover victims. On one of their more productive days, the NYG provided more than 200 adjustments. Dr. Creed, a U.S. Army veteran and past veterans post commander, was inspired by those efforts, and wanted to help. Dr. Creed's seminar was held at Camp Smith, training base for the NYG. During the event, he demonstrated his technique of instrument adjusting and protocols for evaluation, treatment and assessment of soldiers' health issues from the perspective of the chiropractor, patient and technique. CSU attendees received continuing education credits from Texas

Chiropractic College. During welcoming remarks for the event, LTC Patrick Delamere, DC, NYG chief of protective services, and MAJ Floyd Miller, DC, NYG deputy chief, enthused: "It is a proud day in the history of the CSU ... 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 maintains a practice in Coral Gables, Fla.
