Great News for Military Troops!!!!! Chiropractic and Acupuncture Coverage!!!

The Tricare is healthcare provided for military service members, reservist and some retirees. It is expected to cover chiropractic care and acupuncture in the next several months for active duty troops, activated guards and reserve members. As of right now it is being reviewed by the Defense Health Agency and should be available by 2021 or early 2022.

 

Chiropractic care is important because it accentuates the capacity of the body to regenerate itself without the use of drugs and surgery. If you suffer from any back pain, neck pain, sciatica, migraines and many more, it is advised to see a chiropractor where they will focus on the cause of your pain and treat that instead of prescribing pain medication.

 

Another form of letting the body restore itself is through acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been around for more than 3,000 years. It helps maintain balance between the Ying and Yang to keep the energy in the body flowing, which is believed to be the key behind good health. Chiropractic care is notorious for reducing pain and boosting fitness among military troops, whereas acupuncture is known for oncologic related nausea, depression and anxiety. Both work together to help the body feel better with natural procedures. 

The proposal for this change in coverage will be in notice no later than early next year (2020).
