The VA Covers Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture, and Massage Therapy at Creek Stone Integrated Medical
The VA is now covering alternative treatments like chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy at Creek Stone Integrated Medical in Amarillo. Learn how veterans can benefit from these treatments and why they should ask for Creek Stone specifically.
The Veterans Administration (VA) is committed to providing the best possible healthcare to our nation's veterans. In line with this commitment, and following new research and recommendations discussed below, the VA is now covering chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy at Creek Stone Integrated Medical in Amarillo, TX. This is great news for veterans who are looking for alternative treatments to manage their pain and improve their overall health.
It's important to note that veterans need to ask their VA Primary Care Provider (PCP) specifically for Creek Stone Integrated Medical when seeking these treatments, as they could end up being scheduled with any provider in the area if they don't ask. Creek Stone is dedicated to providing veterans with the highest quality care and personalized treatment plans that are tailored to meet their unique needs.
The veterans we treat at Creek Stone report numerous benefits from these alternative treatments. One of the most significant benefits is better sleep. Lots of veterans struggle with insomnia and other sleep disorders, which can be debilitating and make it difficult to function on a day-to-day basis. Our treatments can help veterans with stress and anxiety and help them get the rest they need to feel more alert and energized throughout the day.
Additionally, many of our patients are able to reduce or even eliminate their pain medication. This is especially important for veterans who may be at higher risk of addiction to opioids and other painkillers. By offering alternative treatments that are just as effective in managing pain, we're helping veterans avoid the potential risks associated with long-term use of these medications.
Our treatments can also help veterans become more active and enjoy a higher quality of life overall. Chronic pain can make it difficult to engage in physical activities, which can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle and a decline in overall health. By managing their pain and improving their mobility, we're helping veterans get back to doing the things they love and living life to the fullest.
As mentioned at the top, it's worth noting that the American College of Physicians updated their treatment guidelines in 2017 to recommend spinal manipulative therapy, low-level laser, massage, acupuncture, exercise, and heat for low back pain. All of these treatments are available at Creek Stone Integrated Medical, which means that veterans who are seeking relief from back pain can find everything they need in one convenient location.
The fact that the VA is now covering alternative treatments like chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy at Creek Stone is fantastic news for veterans who are looking for safe, effective ways to manage their pain, manage their stress and anxiety, and improve their overall health. Remember, ask your VA PCP for Creek Stone specifically and if you have any questions we can help you with in the meantime, call us at 806-355-3000 and let our staff help you.
