ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Sept. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- True Life Chiropractic of Anchorage, Alaska, is now offering chiropractic care to local veterans through the VA's Choice Program. The Choice Program allows veterans enrolled in VA health benefits to receive VA-approved health care from non-VA doctors without affecting access to VA healthcare and other VA benefits. Certain conditions must be met in order for eligibility. Dr. M. Michael Michaud, founder of True Life Chiropractic, also offers military discounts to men and women who are active or past members of the military.
Dr. M. Michael Michaud of True Life Chiropractic in Anchorage, Alaska, wants to let area veterans know that chiropractic treatment is now an affordable healthcare option. Conveniently located across from the Veteran's Association, the clinic is excited to provide quality care for local area veterans.
The clinic participates in the VA's Choice Program, a program that allows veterans who qualify to receive VA-approved healthcare from non-VA facility doctors without affecting their access to benefits. True Life also offers military discounts for those who have not been approved for chiropractic care through the Choice Program or are not currently enrolled in the VA's health care program.
"We believe that the men and women who have given up so much, often at the cost of their physical health, deserve the best possible care," says Dr. Michaud. "Offering the discount is our small way of saying thanks while also giving them access to the quality care these men and women deserve."
Conventional medicine focuses on treating symptoms of other conditions and is largely reactionary. Chiropractic medicine, by contrast, focuses on improving health in order to reduce pain and illnesses among patients. Veterans in the area are often wary of medical treatment that involves pharmaceuticals and prefer the holistic approach offered by chiropractic practitioners.
True Life Chiropractic takes a pyramid approach to health with the neurological system forming the foundation. They maintain that when the brain, spinal cord and spine aren't properly aligned that overall health will suffer until that alignment is achieved. Treatment at True Life Chiropractic focuses initially on these central regions.
The next step is to address the kinetic chain (arms, legs, and surrounding joints). Bringing these areas into alignment helps to restore balance throughout the body.
Finally, Dr. Michaud examines the visceral chain. This chain involves connective tissues that support movement and flexibility in the body. These are the areas that are often experience pain and inflammation.
Veterans and other local area residents interested in chiropractic treatment in Anchorage, Alaska, are encouraged to call 907-646-2225 to schedule an appointment.
