Chiropractor Opinion In Addition To Fdc Claim


Went today and received the chiropractor opinion relating to secondary conditions. She stated that it is more than likely than not that my back condition(lumbago) is due to flat feet and she goes on to say how flat feet causes body joints to be misaligned and pain to travel through joints such as knees(Pes anserinus bursitis).I had a orthopedic doctor state whether it was more than likely than not the same as she stated and he wrote it up as well. Is this good enough to go forward with claim? Also Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction was diagnosed. Could I do a FDC if I have everything I need as far as evidence? And could I tell them to rate based on evidence I submit instead of getting an exam when I file a new claim?

you can tell them anything you want, but they are not good at believing vets. They will likely want to send you to a va doc to try and counter what you submit, rather than verify. Your off to a good start though. try it.

I would complete a VA FM 21-526ez (fully developed claim) attach both of the letters you stated and submit to the VARO in your state. The VA will look and review statements by outside doctors. Being told that the VA will send you to see a VA doc to counter what had been submitted has no merit and is warrantless.

When a veteran submits a letter from a doctor and the doctor explains the diagnosis, explains how the secondary condition is related and/or caused by the SC disability, and explains on how he/she reached that decision and annotate any case files that were used in the assistance of the determination, you will be ok. If you submit a letter from a doc that does not explain the who what when where why and how, then you will have problems..

Megp do you think I could call my RO and tell them to just use what I can generate to decide my claims. ? dont send me for a CP ?

If they did it for me, would they not have to do it for every vet who requests?

Heres what I think, I think the RO would look at it like he was hiding something. even though we know he isnt, and is trying to move his claim along. It would automatically generate suspicion.

I dont see the VA thru rose colored glasses like you seem to. Just being real here.

I have never suggested doing the things you stated, I don't wear glasses, but I do know this;

you are clueless and should change your screen name to "its me again, mere speculation"

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
