A study published in Military Medicine Journal in January 2011 reported that 95% of surveyed Air Force Pilots experienced neck pain, and chiropractic care was the most effective treatment.
At this time Congress is reviewing H.R. 329 to amend the Department of Veterans Affairs Health Care Programs Enhancement Act of 2001. This amendment would require the VA to have a chiropractic physician on staff at all major VA medical facilities by 2014. At this time there are 36 VA facilities with chiropractic physician on staff and at least 100 facilities without.
