Veteran’s Rights & Chiropractic Care Progress

Share

In recent years, in recognition of the value and benefits of chiropractic care, Congress has passed, and the President has signed into law, legislation establishing a permanent chiropractic care benefit for both active duty military personnel and veterans. Furthermore, a doctor of chiropractic is now stationed in the U.S. Capitol to provide necessary care to members of Congress

To date, there is a doctor of chiropractic at 60 military bases around the country; however, according to a 2005 Government Accountability Office report, only 54 percent of servicemen and women eligible for chiropractic care can reasonably access the benefit. It is still necessary more is done to increase chiropractic access and availability.

The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) initiated the process of providing veterans with access to chiropractic care by distributing doctors of chiropractic (DCs) on staff at VA hospitals, now providing chiropractic care at approximately 40 major VA treatment facilities within the United States to date.
