In an effort to reclaim patriotism, Chiro One Wellness Centers (COWC) announced today plans to launch “Operation Share the Wellness,” a new initiative aimed at supporting America’s newest returning veterans with immediate access to chiropractic services. Out of a desire to serve and to fill a vitally important health care gap, COWC’s are extending an offer of care for one full year for any US military veteran returning from overseas deployment in Afghanistan and Iraq, at no charge at their 24 Chicagoland and Kentucky area Clinics.
Tens of thousands of US military personnel are being rotated back to the US, many to civilian life, and others to statewide deployment. Beginning July 4th, 2008, Chiro One Wellness Centers’ doors will be open to any returning soldier, both active and inactive and will offer one year of complimentary care to commence the date of entrance into the program. To be eligible for complimentary care, active and inactive duty personnel must be without chiropractic benefits made available by personal, employer-provided, or state or federal health insurance. Services of this new program include chiropractic examinations, adjustments, x-rays, and rehabilitative services. The complimentary care does not include durable medical equipment, nutritional supplements, or similar products. In the spirit of service, COWC plans to supplement Operation Share the Wellness with an internal year-long program geared to support troops through community outreach efforts. Operation Share the Wellness will conclude July 4th, 2009.
“We are proud to provide “Operation Share the Wellness” to our great country’s Military personnel,” states CMO, Brett Penager. “Chiro One Wellness Centers is committed to our vision that ‘every human being discovers their full potential’ and feels a deep sense of pride and honor to support our Troops that are serving in the armed forces. We are acutely aware of the stress and pressure that they experience defending our Nation and want to do our part to make sure they are provided the opportunity to experience extraordinary wellness through Chiropractic care.”
Joining the International Chiropractic Association (ICA) and like-minded chiropractors across the United States, Chiro One Wellness Centers is proud to support our patriots and believes that through the power of a chiropractic adjustment, chiropractic offers a unique asset, as returning veterans strive to recover and restore their lives physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. According to ICA’s Southern Regional Director, Dr. R.J. Kelly, our veterans are returning with a new pattern or trauma and injury. “Regrettably, the care those returning veterans have been receiving through official channels has not always been adequate,” states Kelly. “The impact of war on the human body and soul has been given serious consideration over the years by chiropractic leaders. Our returning veterans, whether visibly wounded of free of outward symptoms, are coming home changed and need our help as chiropractors.”
“On behalf of our entire organization, I would like to personally thank each and every soldier for the commitment they display in serving our country,” states CEO, Dr. Stuart Bernsen. “We have several veterans on our staff and realize the need to provide them with the care that is so desperately needed due to the enormous amount of physical, mental and chemical stress they deal with on a daily basis. We are honored to provide our services to those that serve us.” To find the COWC location nearest you, click ChiroOne.net.
