September 11, 2022 (Falls Church, VA) Twenty-one years later, the morning of September 11 is engrained in most of our memories as if it just took place.
Chiropractors Volunteered As Long as the Tents Stayed Up
The attacks on the Twin Towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Northern Virginia are among the most horrific attacks in history. As grim and horrific of the images of the World Trade Center buildings on fire and falling and the Pentagon on fire, there are images of good that developed over the days and weeks that followed. The mirror images of the horrors of this time are those in our community of doctors of chiropractic – ICA members and others pulling together, volunteering for weeks on end to give chiropractic care to recovery workers at both the Pentagon and the World Trade Center site.
ICA’s Dr. Coralee Van Egmond Spent a Month at the Pentagon with others like former ICA Board member, Dr. Donald Hirsh of Maryland.

Please take a few minutes today to reflect on the events of 9-11-2001 and the acts of service and sacrifice of so many in the days, weeks, and years that followed. Thank you to all who served from the chiropractic community and those who served and serve in uniform as first responders and as members of the military.
