Treating Veterans with Chiropractic Care
Advanced Chiropractic Relief is providing chiropractic treatment to all eligible Veterans through VA Fee-Basis Program. This VA program covers chiropractic care for our veterans. See your primary care provider at your nearest VA medical facility for assistance. Contact VA’s out patient fee-basis program after a referral by your primary care provider, and prior authorization by the department.
Many veterans find they are unable to receive a referral for chiropractic services with their Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) primary care provider (PCP). If you are denied a referral, there are still ways to obtain the services delivered by a Doctor of Chiropractic that you need and deserve. Services provided by doctors of chiropractic are part of the standard medical benefits package available to all eligible veterans. Access to VA chiropractic services is by referral from a VA primary care or specialty provider.
Advanced Chiropractic Relief’s Dr. Gregory Johnson, your Houston Chriporactor, provides chiropractic treatment and care for the management of non-operative neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions. This most commonly includes problems in the low back, neck, and other joints. Our chiropractic services are integrated with primary care, rehabilitation, pain management and other specialty teams.
The VA can choose to provide benefits in 2 ways:
- By having an on-site chiropractic clinic
- By sending veterans to a private Doctor of Chiropractic in the community, using the “Fee-Basis” approach where the VA pays the bill.
Over the past several years, thousands of veterans have received the services provided by doctors of chiropractic at VA clinics as well as through the fee-basis procedure. Many VA primary care providers are routinely discussing the services provided by doctors of chiropractic as an option with their patients. If your PCP has not discussed this with you, bring it up and explain why you think the services delivered by doctors of chiropractic can be a good option for your particular problem.
Chiropractic Treatment For Veterans
Your Houston Chiropractor Dr. Johnson’s approach to treatment is rooted in this simple philosophy: treat both the symptoms and the problem. While medications help reduce the pain, medication does not treat or get rid of the underlying cause of pain. Chiropractic care is an effective treatment technique because Dr. Johnson realigns the body to fix the problem. Our goal with every patient is to improve their health from the inside out.
Lifestyle Counseling- is a natural complement to Chiropractic adjustments and other traditional treatments, and can make a significant difference for your overall health. Lifestyle changes may help control the signs and symptoms associated with your injuries.
Chiropractic Adjustments- Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on the nervous system, promote spinal health and improve overall health. These adjustments are especially beneficial for providing back pain relief and managing chronic pain caused by spinal misalignments.
