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.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
