Veterans May Receive Free Chiropractic Care

In 2002, President George Bush signed Public Law 107-135, which assures chiropractic treatment for all eligible Veterans Affairs patients. Although, many veterans are not aware this service is available to them, despite its inclusion in their Medical Benefits Package since 2004.

 Additionally, the VA is still seeking to make this service accessible to all veterans requiring care. According to the American Chiropractic Association, or ACA, only 48 of 152 Veterans Affairs Medical Centers currently offer chiropractic care for their patients.

Veterans in general have a higher chance of developing any of these conditions due to the strict nature of their military duties. The Seattle Times stated that merely walking and wearing heavy gear has caused many veterans a variety of musculoskeletal injuries. According to the article by Hal Bernton, “The number of soldiers medically retired from the Army with at least one musculoskeletal condition increased nearly 10-fold from 2003 to 2009.” These numbers were determined according to Army statistics.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Generally, active duty service members and veterans may be at a higher risk of developing musculoskeletal injuries or conditions as a result of the strict nature of their military duties. Even simply wearing heavy gear and walking can cause complications for these valuable individuals. Treating their injuries is important and according to a law signed in 2002, veterans may be eligible for free chiropractic care at participating medical clinics.
