Chiropractic Care for Veterans with PTSD

For members and veterans of our military, along with people who have suffered from traumatic life events, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can be a common affliction. Physical pain can increase the symptoms caused by PTSD. Chiropractic care can provide pain reduction treatments while keeping in consideration the mental and emotional needs of the PTSD sufferer.


PTSD is a common problem for returning veterans. 11-20% of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from PTSD says NBC News. PTSD coupled with chronic pain (sometimes caused by the military service itself) can have a magnifying effect on PTSD symptoms. In fact, in a study of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans,1 it was found that physical injury increased the risk of PTSD at least twofold. 

While on active-duty, members of our military usually suffer from some types of physical strain.

Some examples of physical strain include:

  • Decrease quality of sleep
  • Physical and mental strain from staying vigilant at all times
  • Battle Injuries
  • Pain and posture issues from carrying large loads

Chiropractic care reduces the physical pain suffered by a PTSD sufferer so they can start to mentally heal. Due to the Choice Act that was signed by President Trump, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is now allowing veterans to seek local chiropractic treatment through providers who meet the right criteria. The VA states “If you are already enrolled in VA health care, the Choice Program allows you to receive health care within your community. Using this program does NOT impact your existing VA health care, or any other VA benefit”

At Advantage Health & Wellness, we are dedicated to providing Veterans along with sufferers of PTSD with professional, compassionate care. Please contact us today to learn about our chiropractic services.
