Missing From Med Record?

Hello everyone,

I had a question and was hoping I could get some answers. I was a helicopter rescueswimmer with the us coast guard. While on active duty I suffered a mild back injury that required a couple visits to a chiropracter to help things along. To make a long story short Im out now and I still suffer from back pain. I recently found out that I could put in a claim for my injury and some other service related injuries. Here is my question though when I received a copy of my medical records there was nothing in there about my back pain and about my referells to the chiropractor. Is this going to be a major problem and If so since the government paid for the chiro visits shouldnt I be able to use that as some type of proof of service related injury. Thanks for your time.

If there is a major deformity in your back you could use pictures to show before and after service injury. X-ray's and the opinion of a radiologist would be helpful also.
