Fundraising event for Hamilton County Kids Coats

[In the News] Dr. Erin Merrill Macy | Hamilton County Kids Coats

November was a busy month for Dr. Erin Merrill Macy of downtown Sheridan’s Creekside Chiropractic. Not only did Macy host local female artisan entrepreneurs at her annual community holiday shopping bazaar, but she and her team pulled together a highly successful inaugural fundraising event for the Sheridan division of Hamilton County Kids Coats.

“There is a definite need in our community,” says Macy. “The people of Sheridan are who support our local small businesses. Banding together to give back is so important. I’m honored to be able to dive in and help in any way I can.”

Tickets for the November 4, 2017 evening of fundraising at Macy’s Studio on Main featuring local fare from Young’s Kitchen, a silent auction and games of chance sold out in just a few days. Macy had hopes of raising enough to fund coats, hats and mittens for 150 local youth in need. Thanks to event attendees, numerous local sponsors (R & T Tire, Blackhawk Winery, His and Hers Target Sports, Integrity Network Solutions, Hamilton Tax and Accounting, Butts Landscaping, Smith’s Jewelers and more) and donations, she was able to exceed her goal by almost double.

On November 11, 2017 Hamilton County Kids Coats, Santa and the Grinch arrived at the Sheridan Community Center to share Christmas cheer and help local families stay warm this winter. Due to the funds raised through the inaugural fundraising event more Sheridan families were able to receive assistance this year than ever before.

It’s never too late to stay warm. Local Hamilton County families who are still in need of a warm winter coat, hat or gloves, may call 317-324-8818 for assistance.

About Hamilton County Kids Coats:
Hamilton County Kids Coats is an interfaith mission in Hamilton County, Indiana, who collects donated new and used coats and other winter wear and gives them out to local families in need every November.

Spine Stress and Fashionable Shoes

Ladies we know shoes are sometimes EVERYTHING when trying to complete an outfit just right. Moreover, with the most sought-after flats, wedges, heels and boots just a click away on online outlets like justfab.com, it’s hard to think any cute shoe or boot might be the wrong footwear, right?!

But, indeed, the wrong shoe can be a nightmare for your spine. If your shoes aren’t properly supporting your spine, undue stress may be placed on your back. This is particularly true for people who must stand for long periods of time on a regular basis, but even a short amount of time in the wrong shoes can cause stress and pain to your vertebrae and the soft tissues that support them.

What to Expect on a First Visit | Hamilton County Chiropractic Care

What Is A First Chiropractic Visit Like?

Many new chiropractic care patients are not sure what to expect during their first appointment with a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC).

Chiropractors start by taking a patient’s history and then performing a physical examination to develop a working diagnosis. Imaging or lab tests (such as MRI, CT scan or X-ray) may be used to confirm a diagnosis.
The combination of the history, exam, and diagnostic studies will enable your doctor of chiropractic to reach a diagnosis, which will help him or her to determine whether chiropractic services are appropriate for your condition. If your doctor determines you would be more appropriately managed or co-managed by another health care professional, he or she will make the proper referral. Read more
