The future of chiropractic care within the military starts here.
The Patriot Project is a grass roots movement to provide chiropractic care to all Active Military, their Families, Wounded Warriors & All Gold Star Dependents.
It's a little known fact that chiropractic care is included in veteran's health benefits, and it's an underutilized option. The Patriot Project aims to change this by making chiropractic care readily available to our service members.
With adequate funding, The Patriot Project plans to develop a USO-type chiropractic care tour, visiting military bases at home and around the world, including all active forward operating bases like those in Afghanistan and Iraq.
We are calling on all chiropractors to help by becoming a patriot. Participating doctors will make time available to treat at least one armed-service member a week at no charge. He/she will also help us collect patient testimonials, which will be used to further our cause in Congress.
The Patriot Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Many people suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. Most will seek the advice of a healthcare professional. However, many times this care is fragmented and not based on current evidence and can result in poorer outcomes. When considering outcomes, all doctors must consider creating a diagnosis, prognosis and then conclude a treatment plan. It is that treatment plan, which then determines the outcome after an accurate diagnosis. Many times, low back pain patients seek solely standard medical care and bypass a more effective chiropractic solution. This type of self-referral and physician triage has also been prevalent in the military and asks the question based upon outcome studies, is that in the best interest of both the military and the general public?

Hundreds of onlookers waving flags, along with military past and present stood in solidarity and support of the group of heroes.
"Coming from a unit that doesn't always get a parade or a welcome home except for the families and those close to us...it's been breathtaking," said Master Sergeant Retired Leroy Petry, who received the Medal of Honor for his bravery in Iraq.
During combat Master Sergeant Petry says he noticed an enemy grenade...
