Local film on chiropractic profession to premiere at the Avalon

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Raising awareness about alternative medicine has become a passion project for two local filmmakers.

“Project Patient” is a feature-length documentary by Jim Chester and Luke Millett.

It takes an up-close look at chiropractic care, as a means of treating more than just headaches and back pain.

Chester says, after making this film, he’s learned chiropractors can also treat chronic pain, hormonal imbalances, and even be a route to treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Chester has been working on films about the chiropractic profession for more than nine years.

He hopes to raise awareness about the health care sector. "Project Patient” will premiere on May 11 at the Avalon theater
