CARING FOR OUR VETERANS

CHIROPRACTIC & PRIMARY CARE FOR VETERANS

Chiropractic & Primary Care For Veterans

American military veterans have given their lives to protecting this amazing nation, and at Hendrick Wellness Center, we believe it is only right to give them back the care they deserve. That’s why we would like to proudly announce that we are providing quality chiropractic care for veterans in McAllen through our partnership with TriWest Healthcare Alliance.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Patient-Centered Community Care Program (PC3) and Veterans Choice Program (VCP) cover chiropractic services for Veterans seeking care. The VA generally provides benefits by:

  • Providing veterans an on-site chiropractic clinic at their local VA clinic; or
  • Using the Fee-Basis Program to send veterans to a private chiropractor in the community.

If you are suffering from a musculoskeletal disorder, severe pain in your muscle, joints, and bones, or back pain caused by trauma, chiropractic care may be the solution to help relieve your discomfort. Our military veterans deserve the medical care and attention worthy of their sacrifice. Your dedicated team at Hendrick Wellness Center delivers a holistic approach to chiropractic treatment. We focus on non-surgical, non-invasive chiropractic care methods that include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments to relieve pressure
  • Joint manipulation
  • Lifestyle counseling
  • Electric stimulation
  • Exercises

And much more! To learn more about our McAllen chiropractic services, contact Hendrick Wellness Center today at 956-630-2255 to schedule a consultation.

About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care focuses on treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, as well as how these disorders can have other effects on an individual’s general health. Chiropractic treatment is often non-invasive, hands-on, and drug-free, meaning no medications are required.

Chiropractic care is delivered by Doctors of Chiropractic or chiropractors. Chiropractors are highly trained medical professionals who must complete chiropractic doctoral programs as well as complete thousands of hours of training, classroom instruction, lab work, and clinical training, while also passing national board examinations and maintaining their license by earning continuing education (CE) credits.

  • Back sprains and strains
  • Neck pain
  • Pain from trauma (i.e. car or work accident)
  • Coccydynia
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Myofascial pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal osteoarthritis
  • Whiplash

Getting the Care You Need

Veterans interested in obtaining chiropractic treatment will need to receive a referral for chiropractic services through their VA primary care provider (PCP). If you have not talked with your PCP about chiropractic care, now is the time to mention it and explain why you believe these services could be a good option for your current health issue. Check to see if these services are provided on-site and ask them to begin the process for approval.

If on-site services are not available, request a referral to see a private chiropractor. The services delivered by our McAllen chiropractors fall in alignment with the current VA and Department of Defense guidelines for treating back pain. Chiropractic services are available to all eligible veterans through their standard Medical Benefits Package.
