Area chiropractic college to host symposium for WEG Sept. 20

Published 8:00 am Friday, July 20, 2018

In anticipation of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games in Mill Spring, Spartanburg County’s Sherman College will host its first annual Spinal Health Symposium on Thursday, Sept. 20, with a special focus on the human-animal bond.

The symposium will feature a social event open to the public, as well as a private dinner, both featuring three doctors in the field: certified animal chiropractor Jay Komarek, and American Veterinary Chiropractic Association certified veterinarians Amy Hayek and Bill Ormston.

“We know the 2018 World Equestrian Games will bring renewed interest in horses and, of course, the special bond that animals and humans share,” said Sherman College President Dr. Edwin Cordero. “We also know that any living being with a spine and nervous system can benefit from chiropractic care. It was only natural for us to bring these two passions together to share the beneficial role of chiropractic in caring for horses and other animals.”
