The American Chiropractic Association reported “The US House of Representatives has approved a directive that orders the Pentagon to make chiropractic care a standard benefit for all active-duty military personnel.”

To date, doctors of chiropractic are at 49 military bases around the country, but only 54% of servicemen and women eligible for chiropractic care can reasonably access the benefit.

This bill permits the Pentagon to conduct demonstration projects to implement chiropractic care at overseas military facilities.
