U.S. Veteran Health Concerns in Lakewood, WA: Dr. Lissa Grannis
Insurance Accepted • Complimentary Consultations
U.S. Veteran Health Concerns in Lakewood, WA: For members and veterans of our military, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can be a common affliction. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that PTSD afflicts: Almost 31 percent of Vietnam veterans. As many as 10 percent of Gulf War (Desert Storm) veterans. 11 percent of veterans of the war in Afghanistan. PTSD coupled with chronic pain can have a magnifying effect on PTSD symptoms.
Chiropractic care and PTSD
Chiropractic care reduces the physical pain suffered by a PTSD patient so they can start to mentally heal. Due to the Choice Act that was signed by President Trump, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is now allowing veterans to seek local chiropractic treatment through providers who meet the right criteria. The VA states “If you are already enrolled in VA health care, the Choice Program allows you to receive health care within your community. Using this program does NOT impact your existing VA health care, or any other VA benefit”
