Act FASTER

The extent to which stroke hits the population isn't widely advertised. Stroke, it's not something anyone can truly be prepared for but knowing the risks, how to recognize the warning signs...not just FAST, observe FASTER: Face, Arms, Stability, Talking, Eyes, React, these are the things that can make all the difference. https://www.beaumont.org/health-wellness/blogs/stroke-symptoms-from-fast-to-faster

  • 15% of Ischemic strokes affect young adults & adolescents.
  • There has been a 44% increase in young adult hospitalization for stroke in America in the last decade.
  • Minorities have a higher risk of stroke, higher risk of stroke when younger, and sometimes risk of more severe stroke.
  • Chiropractic manipulation, (even self manipulation) especially high velocity adjustment of the neck is a risk.
  • Keeping your brain and body active, can make a huge difference in how you recover from a stroke.
  • Rehab doesn't end when a patient leaves a center, it becomes a huge part of their daily life, and keeping it up is vital.

We are raising awareness and celebrating stroke survivors at the Phoenix Comeback Trail 5K - a charity event that supports the National Stroke Association. Stroke doesn't just affect the victim, it affects their family and friends. We are a testament to that and want to continue to show our support. This 5K walk/fun-run empowers stroke survivors and caregivers to #ComebackStrong. We've set a fundraising goal to support the stroke rehabilitation and prevention efforts of the National Stroke Association.

Please support our team, and the 7 million stroke survivors in the United Sates, by making a donation today. Together, we can empower survivors and caregivers as they come back strong from stroke.
