The Veterans Choice Program is designed to improve timely access to healthcare for Veterans by allowing Veterans to use approved health care providers outside of the VA. Our office provides Chiropractic, Physical Medicine and Acupuncture treatments when they are authorized by the VA through the Veterans Choice Program.
Veterans in Arizona can obtain authorization for the Veterans Choice Program directly from their VA provider. The Veterans Choice Program in Arizona is not administered by Health Net Federal Services. The TriWest Healthcare Alliance administers the Veterans Choice Program in Arizona. Be sure to ask specifically for a referral to our office when getting authorization for treatment under the Veterans Choice Program.
PTSD Treatment with Alpha-Stim AID Technology
Veterans suffering from anxiety, insomnia, and depression as a result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often benefit from Acupuncture treatment along with Alpha-Stim AID Cranial Electrotherapy. In a study at Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston, Texas, veterans who experience severe anxiety, insomnia and depression chose Alpha-Stim 3 out of 4 times. These were veterans who were suffering from chronic pain along with mood and sleep disorders. After being shown how to use 5 treatment options, they continued to choose Alpha-Stim 73% of the time. For more information on Alpha-Stim AID treatment and how it can help veterans, please visit the Alpha-Stim AID website at www.alpha-stim.com.
After multiple Infantry deployments, I was left dealing with degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, and various other orthopedic issues. Successive treatments of Chiropractic adjustments, Acupuncture, and muscle stimulation were a significant part of my path to regaining functionality and reducing chronic pain without being over-medicated. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Brown. In my experience, his focus has always been helping the patient. — K. G.
