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. 

Brian says he and his wife are seeking additional places to give back to Conway by doing adjustments and giving classes on health and nutrition.

“Frequently the people we serve have been sleeping in a tent, in a car or on a couch.  Many of them suffer with pain silently," said Judi Lively, executive director of Bethlehem House. "Chiropractic adjustment can make a huge difference in how they feel both physically and mentally." 

Bethlehem House is a transitional shelter in Conway that seeks to encourage and motivate homeless and nearly homeless individu­als and families to take the necessary steps to improve their life situations. For more information or to help, go to www.bethlehemhouse.net.
