|VA Chiropractors To Perform Physical Exams for Military Veteran Truck Drivers
President Trump has signed into law the Job for Our Heroes Act, which includes a provision allowing chiropractors working within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to perform physical exams on veterans needing a medical certificate to operate a commercial motor vehicle. "The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is committed to improving the health of our veterans by removing barriers and expanding access to chiropractors in the VA as well as other federal programs," said ACA President David Herd, DC. Prior to the legislation, only 25 medical doctors within the entire VA health care system were qualified to perform the Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exams. Providers in the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners—including more than 3,500 chiropractors—were excluded from providing the exams to truck drivers who receive their care through the VA health care system. Consequently, the drivers were burdened with limited access and increased wait times, and were forced to look outside the VA and pay for eligible health professionals to perform the required physical. By increasing the number of health professionals, including chiropractors, who may conduct the physical exams, the new law will the ease the process, as well as save time and money, for veterans seeking commercial driver’s licenses.

|Chiropractic First - Surgery Last
|Many individuals suffering from back, neck and spinal-related conditions experience mild to moderate, even severe chronic pain. Often, a sense of frustration and hopelessness lead many to obtain surgery in their quest for relief before considering other forms of safer, less invasive care. The medical research discussing the complications of surgery are loaded with statements including, "Surgical site infection (SSI) after spinal surgery can result in several serious secondary complications, such as pseudoarthrosis, neurological injury, paralysis, sepsis, and death." Certainly there are conditions that may require surgical intervention. However, it's essential to first ensure that other forms of safe, non-invasive, mainstream interventions such as chiropractic care have first been considered, especially given the severity of complications related to spinal surgeries. If you or a loved one are experiencing neck, back and/or spinal related pain and/or discomfort, or, perhaps it's simply time for a checkup, call your local doctor of chiropractic today. Most chiropractors offer no obligation consultations allowing an opportunity to meet with the doctor and discuss your case prior to making any decisions about care.

|Appreciate your Doctor of Chiropractic
Did you know chiropractors are in a high-risk group for low back disorders. Ironically, low back problems are the most common conditions chiropractors treat. While providing patient care, chiropractors can place a great deal of stress on their back and spine. So next time you see your chiropractor working hard to get and keep you well, give them a friendly pat on the back
they deserve it!
