A national study of veterans found that 52% used complementary and integrated health options to manage their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation topping the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in undertaking at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans are like you! They pursue Fort Wayne chiropractic care outside the usual system at times, too!

Veterans particularly suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for such overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System would want to carefully diagnose and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they are getting all the necessary care.
