Centered Health & Wellness is an in-network provider with the VA to treat veterans in the Chattanooga Area.
The use of chiropractic services in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system has seen a steep rise over more than a decade, according to research published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT).
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, who analyzed VA national data collected between 2004 and 2015, discovered an increase of more than 800 percent in the number of patients receiving the services of doctors of chiropractic. While authors attribute the increase to a natural growth of the chiropractic service, which was only implemented on-site at the VA in 2004, they also suggest it may be attributed to the successful performance of VA chiropractors and the perceived value of their care, among other factors.
Centered Health & Wellness is able and ready to help treat veterans living in the Chattanooga Area not able to commute to a larger VA clinic that offers Chiropractic care using their VA benefits. Dr. Corey Idrogo, a veteran himself who had an injury while serving that was corrected with chiropractic, has always wanted to give back more to other veterans and show them that there are safer more effective ways to help with spine injuries rather than just pain killers and surgery. According to The Spine Journal “There have been 10 times as many long-term spinal pain casualties unrelated to combat injuries among Iraq and Afghanistan veterans compared with blast injuries.” Centered use safe effective methods to help spine injuries through chiropractic and rehabilitative exercise.
