Dr. Mike Rumple of Elk Valley Chiropractic in Fernie is reaching out to families with children who have been diagnosed with cancer in the Elk Valley.

Dr. Mike Rumpel has recently joined the Chiropractic Cancer Foundation for Children (CCFFC).  “We will enrich the lives of children suffering from cancer by helping to ease their pain and nurture a process of self healing,” says Rumpel.

CCFFC’s mandate is to remove the financial barriers so kids can receive chiropractic treatment gratis.

“A collegue in New Zealand recommended CCFFC, I loved what they represented so I joined right away,” said Rumpel.

Joining the CCFC is a commitment that chiropractic treatment is free to a child with cancer.

Stress and poor circulation can undermine the body’s natural healing powers and interfere with the central nervous system’s ability to communicate effectively. The purpose of the foundation is to ensure that all children with cancer have access to free chiropractic care so that cost is not a factor in the decision to obtain this important care for all those in need.

A subluxation is a misalignment of the vertebrae of the spine, which will affect nerve function – this “nerve interference” can negatively impact all elements of health because the nervous system controls every function of the body. This includes the immune system, which is critical in fighting cancer.

“By adjusting any subluxations, we free the nervous system to relieve stressors allowing the body to self heal, and self regulate,” explains Rumpel. “Chiropractic can help children with cancer deal with pain and discomfort. The harshness of most medical cancer treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation is hard on the body, the physical and mental stress of it. Chiropractic is appropriate for all ages from infants to teenagers.

“It’s incredible how many families in the Elk Valley are being effected by childhood cancer. It’s important to reach these families to let them know what options are available in addition to traditional medical treatment. The first step is to go through an initial consultation to see if chiropractic is appropriate, and then do a follow up with a decision by the family what they would like to do. There is no billing.

“I’m a father. I have three kids and the thought of being in that situation horrifies me so I am excited to offer hope to these families.”
