The Patriot Project
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.
Chiropractic care is included in veteran’s health benefits but has not been made readily available for all veterans. Many of the ailments currently being treated largely with pain medication can be relieved more conservatively with chiropractic care. It is important to offer our active duty non-drug, non-surgical options for their painful conditions and Doctors of Chiropractic offer such care with attention to the optimum function and health of the whole person. The Patriot Project aims to make chiropractic care readily available for ALL active duty personnel.
