Those who remain skeptical about the health benefits associated with chiropractic adjustments may be interested to learn the U.S. government’s point of view regarding the topic.
At the end of May 2008 the U.S. House of Representatives officially recognized chiropractic adjustments to be part of a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, they have approved a directive that orders the Pentagon to make chiropractic care a standard benefit for all active-duty military personnel.
The bill — passed by the Armed Services Committee on May 14 and the full House on May 22 — also contains language allowing for chiropractic demonstration projects at overseas military locations and clarifies that chiropractic care at U.S. military facilities is to be performed only by a doctor of chiropractic.
To date, Doctors of Chiropractic are at 49 military bases around the country.
