Orem Chiropractor Provides Back And Neck Pain Relief For Military Troops
As an Orem Chiropractor and as a child of the 80's my teen age years fell between the Vietnam War and the first Gulf War, but during the cold war. I have some memories of the Vietnam War, but I would have only been six years old when it ended. The Gulf War started in my early twenties. By that time I had set the course of my life.
The point being, I never really considered military service.
Having said that, I am deeply thankful for those who have served, and as President Lincoln said, "gave the last full measure" to our country.
Earlier this year the Department of Defense reported that troops will have access to chiropractic care. Aches and pains, whether from age or accident, have a tendency to be a byproduct for many sailors and Marines in their duties. To help ease the hurt, active-duty personnel have the option of seeking help from a chiropractor. Spring Aragon, the resident chiropractor at Branch Health Clinic Bangor, ensures service members get the best care for muscular pain and physical discomfort. Aragon said she supports the mission of Naval Hospital Bremerton to enable readiness, wellness and health care by the accurate diagnosis of spinal, neuromusculoskeletal injuries and conditions, providing corrective and rehabilitative adjustments and treatments for those conditions listed, and performing prevention therapy.
Emphasis here is mine, but I use it to point out what the Department of Defense sees the purpose of chiropractic care. Correction, rehabilitation and prevention.
I couldn't agree more.
