(WAFF) - May is National Military Appreciation Month. HealthSource, one of the largest networks of chiropractic, massage and progressive rehabilitation clinics, is celebrating the month by honoring veterans and active service military personnel with free exams and X-rays to address back and neck pain.
The goal is to bring awareness to the use of chiropractic care rather than prescription treatments for pain which can lead to opioid addiction.
“We can do certain things to help them with their pain, whether it’s combat-related injuries or muscular skeletal pain. The goal is to restore functional movement and decrease the tension so they can get their bodies working they way that they need to,” said Dr. Travis Simmons of HealthSource.
The offer is good at all participating HealthSource clinics across the Tennessee Valley through the end of the month.
