  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Try A Chiropractor

Recommended Posts

I'm not a doc...just stating what has worked for me and my family and sharing.

I fully believe (and know) that chiropractors are great at helping. I was in an auto accident last fall and had a neck injury. I was treated by a chiropractor and it was wonderful!

My son is treated by the same chiropractor for back and shoulder (his pitching shoulder) pain. Great results.

My nephew had back surgery for buldging discs....it didn't help; so he began seeing a chiropractor....he's back to playing golf.

His dad....same thing.

My sister and mom both have bad backs as well and see a chiro-doc regularly...helps them tremendously.

I only tell everyone this to show that they do work. Some VAMCs now have them on staff. If yours does....check it out. If not...ask your PCP for a referral if nothing else is helping. It can't hurt.

Just my 2 cents worth and personal experience.

I believe that there are instances where ALL medically-trained professionals can be of assistance, be they Chiropractor, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Medical Doctors, Podiatrist, Physicians Assistant, Holistic Practitioner, Accupuncturist, Massage Therapist. Any, or all of them, at one time or another, can do great good.

One of the best heart surgeons in the world is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.). He can also grab hold of me, turn my left arm up over my shoulder and twist my upper body and relieve some of my pain, better than codeine. Hurts like heck for a few seconds, then I don't have as great a need for my drugs, for a couple of weeks.

It's all relative, It's all relative.

I would be careful about hiring a chiropractor and I guess it all depends on what they are hired for. After, my stroke (2 years ago) I learned a chiropractor can cause a stroke.

stroke.about.com

www.attorneysfortheinjured.com

And of course there are sites that say no to this theory or studies.

Well for those who feel chiropractors help they are usually going on personal experience and I trust that more than articles. My wife went to one for a couple of years and than quit going. I think that for some the manipulations can hurt but she won't really say why and I leave it alone.

My Brother is a Masseuse and when he works on me I have to tell him he is hurting and he backs down.So I guess for it to work you have to have good communication.

I neither endorse or oppose alternative forms of Medicine.

Hello,and hello again Purple. I am new here, But this is something I do know alot about. And may help someone reading this. I am a person who's life was actually saved by a chiropracter. I mean literally saved. What happened was I suffered a severe head, neck and skull injury that almost killed me. It was a bizaare accident to the head, but anyway I went thru the usual battery of medical tests, scans, mri's tests. After two years, so sick I could not walk, stand or drive, see or hear. luckily I ended up at a chirpractor. In one minute flat he felt with his hands what was wrong. I had a dislocated head, skull, neck and jaw, that the medical community missed with all the fancy tests. Now I have one more thing to mention to any Vet who has had a head trauma of any kind . Please get your head and especially your neck checked by a chiropracter. They look for different things. Head and neck injuries are very serious. It can cause anything to happen for symptoms. Anyone here that has suffered a head trauma, there is a high likelyhood you may have suffered a neck injury as well, and I have witnessed all kinds of great results hanging out at the chiro's all the time. From headache relief, to people who have hip problems, shoulders, knees. You name it. I've seen it. Look for one with experience. They do go thru 8 years of medical training, are great with bones and nerve issues and neurological problems as well as pain. You just have to try it, and see how it goes. There is a site on the internet where experienced chiros answer questions for free. If anyone wants to go there and ask them your questions. just email me, and i'll give you the link.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
