The future of chiropractic care within the military starts here
The Patriot Project is a grassroots 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 veterans' health benefits and is 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 weekly at no charge. He/she will also help us collect patient testimonials, which will be used to further our cause in Congress.
To provide chiropractic care to active military, their families, wounded warriors, and Gold Star Dependents.
To make full chiropractic benefits in TRICARE care readily available for ALL active duty military, retirees, and veterans.
To have chiropractic physicians commissioned as officers in all armed services.
To have chiropractic physicians embedded in all forward operating bases of combat.
To have a Chiropractic Department in every VA hospital and clinic.
To educate veterans with service-related disabilities, they have chiropractic benefit coverage through the Veterans Administration.
Please let your congressman know chiropractic care is supposed to be available as a veteran’s health benefit, but access to this non-drug, non-surgical care is currently restricted to only a small portion of veterans who need and desire it. The conservative care of chiropractic physicians needs to be readily available to ALL active duty military personnel.
