  • 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

Chiropractic care

Question

I know the VA is using chiropractic care for treatment! Awesome!!

But does anyone know if we can get massage therapy to complement chiropractic care? 

Also can I get a 12v heating pad for my vehicle to relieve me back pain/injury?

I am also interested in your question regarding massage therapy.

My VAMC's physical therapy clinic gave me a heating pad for my back. It was A/C only, but I bought a power inverter so I can use in while driving.

I thought I have read somewhere about vets getting massage therapy. I pay $60 an hour out of pocket for it. With the nightmare I have seen my acupuncturist go through to get bills paid by VA, the massage therapist would have to charge $120 an hour to make up for all the lost time spent billing.

My VMC Pain Center opened Chiropractic, Full Acupressure Needle services back in 12/2016. You can get a Full (8 to 12 Needles) Needling about every 3 weeks, I all so took advantage of both full Needling and the Ear Combat pin insertions, about (6) Metal or Japanese ear pins.

Besides the Acupuncture that really helps, I took advantage of the 2016 VMC Essential Oil Pain topical oil mix. A private Podiatrist sold me $30 for a 30 day Oil Mix that seems to help. When the VMC started the Essential Oils, it actually worked better for the chronic night Neuropathy pain.

The Essential oil mix, about 5 oils mixed with an Alow Oil Carrier, is supplied within 2 days, you receive a large 60 day supply by the MH RN in the MH Dept. You have to request a referral to the MH RN for essential oil by your VMC PCP.

Yes, I know it’s a hassle for private providers to get paid. I helped one get paid that told me he could not afford to do Vets any more.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
