Chiropractors give back to Conway by helping homeless

Chiropractors give back to Conway by helping homeless

CONWAY, Ark. - Doctors Brian and Merissa Beard, husband and wife, have been in Conway for a little over a year, and for the last three months they have been using their skills as Chiropractors to help the homeless.

Merissa says, "We were looking for somewhere to give back to our community. Conway has been awesome giving to us.”

The Beards had worked performing adjustments on Sundays at a homeless church while attending Parker University in Dallas. It was a logical step for the Beards to start helping the homeless through Bethlehem House, Conway’s homeless shelter.

 “Chiropractic adjustments can help in tremendous ways. Anything from treating neck pain, back pain and headaches to helping people sleep better, to function better and for overall health,” Brian added.

The Beards perform chiropractic adjustments at the Bethlehem House once a week either on Monday evenings or Thursday afternoons.
