Chiro Changes Pain Digital Toolkit
Our Brand Story
For the first time, associations across the country came together and developed a consistent brand for the profession that effectively communicates our value to Canadians and the healthcare system. We have worked nationally with our provincial partners to develop and support national brand positioning from the perspective of patients. Creating and establishing a consistent brand for the profession represents an incredible effort on behalf of all those who took part. To help demonstrate the impact of having this Brand Position, we want to share with you our first brand story video. We are so excited to deliver a clear message that resonates with Canadians, clarifying, what we do, why we do it, and how we change lives.

Chiropractic Care Changed My Pain
The purpose of the social media campaign ‘Chiropractic Care Changed My Pain’ is to showcase different perspectives of those impacted by chiropractic care. By sharing compelling stories of the burden of spine, muscle, and nervous system conditions on Canadians and the effort that chiropractors give to treat their patients, we hope to evoke an emotional reaction from the public.
We would encourage you to share this campaign with your patients and suggest that they submit their story about how chiropractic care changed their pain!
Requirements for submission:
1) Short story or quote in 50–180 words (maximum)
2) A high-resolution photo to accompany your story/quote
3) Author’s name and contact information
4) Submission of the story/quote to email@example.com
We have provided a number of resources below to help you participate in our campaign and contribute to our public message. There are various downloadable posters, brochures, and images that can be posted on your social media platforms, your website or around your clinic to encourage your patients to submit their own stories.
This is a project that we will continue to build year-round!
