      Who is eligible for Chiropractic Services?

ACTIVE DUTY ONLY
The National Defense Authorization Act of 2001 made chiropractic a benefit only for active duty military.

It is not a benefit of TRICARE. If dependents or retirees would like chiropractic care, at this time, it will be at their own expense, and not at a military facility.

      How can I get an appointment with the Chiropractor?

We are now a AD SELF–REFERRAL clinic, so you do NOT need a referral. To make an appointment just call our clinic directly at: 333–5582 It is that easy.

      What can Chiropractors Treat?

In the military, chiropractors can see patients with "neuro-musculoskeletal conditions typical among military personnel on active duty." (NDAA 2001)

Examples of what this means are:
  • Mid and Low Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck, Shoulder and Arm pain
  • Rib pain
  • Backache from Pregnancy
  • And More (call if you have a question)
      What is Chiropractic?

In the military, chiropractors treat nerve, muscle and joint pain by non-drug or non–surgical techniques. Though, we work with your physician, who may prescribe medication when necessary.

Our goal is to find where the pain is coming from, and why it is there, and to get you better as fast as possible, and then to keep the pain from returning.

Our main technique, especially for neck and back pain, is called an "adjustment," or "manipulation." There are many different techniques. Our goal is to find the most effective and most comfortable for each person.

We also use exercises, different forms of soft tissue therapy, heat, ice, ultrasound, and other therapies as necessary to treat our patients. Our approach is very "hands–on."
