Military Veterans Chiropractic Care in Victorville
Life Chiropractic in Victorville provides a variety of all-natural healing therapies that help relieve pain and restore mobility for our patients. They frequently come to us looking for relief after a sports injury, workplace injury or some type of auto injury accident. Our clinic is now proud to also be able to offer our services to veterans who may be suffering from back pain caused by a neuromuscular condition. Eligible veterans will be able to receive reimbursement for chiropractic care received at our office through the Veteran Administration’s outpatient program. Veterans simply need to be referred by a primary care provider and receive authorization from the VA.
Our Victorville chiropractor understands that military service can cause many types of life-altering injuries that lead to lower back pain, stiffness and decreased mobility. Some service-related injuries may be the result of handling or carrying heavy equipment for extended periods of time. Others may be due to repetitive motion injuries that cause stress on your spinal column and joints. You may be suffering from sciatica caused by a bulging or herniated disc. Or you could be in need of rehabilitative care to help you recover from a combat injury. We can help ease your transition back into civilian life through a course of treatment designed to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and restore your mobility.
Victorville Chiropractor Treats Veterans
Once you come to our clinic after receiving authorization and a referral from your VA doctor, our chiropractor will perform a thorough examination to understand the cause and extent of your service-related back pain. We may ask about your military occupation and the types of activities you performed, or inquire about any injury accident that may be the cause of your pain. If you were required to perform a great deal of heavy lifting or other strenuous activities, let our doctor know so we can develop a treatment plan that is based on your unique situation.
The treatment plan we develop is different for each patient, but it is always based on non-invasive, all natural forms of rehabilitative care. Our chiropractor may perform spinal adjustments to gently realign your spine and remove pressure caused by subluxations. If you have been involved in an injury accident we may recommend mechanical traction and corrective exercises to help restore mobility. Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS) might be needed to help your muscles get moving again. Your recovery plan may include cryotherapy or moist heat therapy to help control swelling and inflammation. If you are suffering from lower back pain due to sciatica or a herniated disc, we might recommend spinal decompression therapy to relieve pressure on your nerve endings.
If you’re a veteran who is in some type of pain due to your military service, visit your VA office to determine if you are eligible for this type of medical treatment. Life Chiropractic thanks you for your service and we look forward to helping you get back on track in your civilian life.
