Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic values the contributions and sacrifices that our military services personnel have made for our country and our families. We take great pride in treating our patients who are active-duty service members or retired veterans.
Because low back pain is one of the leading causes of disability among U.S. military personnel, it is important to find pragmatic and conservative treatments that will treat low back pain and preserve low back function so that military readiness is maintained. As a conservative approach to this problem, chiropractic spinal manipulation is an excellent tool to assist our military personnel.
In response to veteran demand, Congress authorized the VA to begin providing chiropractic services in 1999. Since late 2004, chiropractic services have been included as part of the standard Medical Benefits Package available to all enrolled veterans. VA provides these services on-station or through community care at all medical centers.
