Substantial Growth of Chiropractic Care by Veterans Affairs

Share

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress highlights a new study which reports substantial growth in the use of chiropractic care by the U.S. Department.

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) notes that for more than 10 years, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has included chiropractic services as part of the standard medical benefits package offered to all enrolled veterans. According to a new study conducted by researchers from the VA Connecticut Healthcare System, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, the use of chiropractic services and the chiropractic workforce in VA has grown substantially since their introduction over a decade ago.

“Our work shows that VA has steadily and substantially increased its use of chiropractic services each year following their implementation in late 2004,” states lead author of the study Anthony J. Lisi, DC, Director of the VA Chiropractic Program, and Chiropractic Section Chief at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. He then added, “VA continues its efforts to ensure appropriate access to chiropractic care across the whole system, but as this paper shows, the progress to date has been remarkable.”

For approximately a decade, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, or VA, has provided the use of chiropractic care and treatment in the medical benefits of veterans. Through chiropractic care, a doctor of chiropractic (DC) can treat a variety of injuries and conditions affecting many veterans, ensuring the individual’s symptoms as well as the root cause of the issues are relieved, restoring their overall health and well-being.
