Just curious if the MIDS have access to chiropratic care?
Not 100% positive on this, but my guess would be if they need it then they would have access. Not sure if there are any on campus, but if it was warranted I am guessing they would probably send them off campus if it was needed.
There are only a handful of places in the Navy that offer Chiropractic care (off the top of my head I know of Pensacola and via the Army at Madigan if you are stationed in the Seattle area). If there is a chiropractor on staff at the clinic (there very well may be) then they would have access. For what the mids need I'd much rather see a sports medicine or PM&R doc though.
Chiropractic care is not covered otherwise and as an active duty person you cannot be referred "into the civilian world" for chiropractic care.
I won't go into the debate as to allopathic vs osteopathic vs naturopathic vs chiropractic vs oriental vs homeopathic vs naturopathic vs quackery medicine and which of those fits as 'quackery' as it's never a fruitful discussion.
Thanks. I was just curious with all the sports programs at the Academy. I know some of the University sport programs around here bring in a Chiropractor weekly for the athletes. My daughter is a pitcher (fast-pitch softball) and sees one weekly during the season to get untwisted (definitely makes a difference). You are right, there are some interesting chiropractors. We've been fortunate to find "normal" one.
Just see your PT
I don't think they have D.C.'s at the clinic but no harm, no foul. Any decent PT can do manipulation, practically the same technique just a different reason for doing it. You'll need to probably clear it with the Physician first. If it's just for maintenance care then they might not do it.
