THE WOODLANDS, TX — There is a tremendous sacrifice that men and women agree to when signing up to serve in the military. Their contributions to the protection of our liberties and freedoms come at a great cost. When these men and women leave the military, it is an important task for our communities to step up and help veterans anyway we can. We have been highlighting veterans that own local businesses around The Woodlands area. We want to also highlight individuals and businesses that try to offer help to active and retired veterans through discounts or free services. There are many local companies that provide free services. In the healthcare area, some organizations provide a temporary or limited service. It is great to find local businesses that offer completely free services that allow veterans the ability to receive care without any out-of-pocket costs. Dr. Todd Hatch of Sunrise Chiropractic Care is one such business.
About Wounded Warrior Volunteer Association
According to Todd’s website, dedicated to the services he provides for veterans, Wounded Warriors Volunteer Association, “In the later part of 2008 Dr. Todd Hatch, a chiropractor in Houston Texas, learned of the wounded warrior project while on a bicycle ride from San Antonio, Texas to Corpus Christi, Texas. Having experienced significant frustration when trying to work with veteran’s through the VA hospital he felt that running into this group was a sign. Ultimately he was able to participate in a 3-day bicycle ride with a phenomenal group of soldiers. During the course of that event he discovered through conversations with the soldiers that while many received exemplary medical care after their initial injuries, there were large gaps in follow up care. Some of those gaps were due to soldier relocation after their discharge, lack of coverage under TriCare, or the soldier becoming frustrated with the bureaucracy and red tape. Over the next year various discussions with other medical providers and chiropractors lead to the formation of WWVA. The primary goal of WWVA is to assist the warrior in locating a doctor that can assist them with their health care needs at no charge to the veteran. This should not be viewed by the patient or the doctor as a charity but rather as one American helping a fellow American that was willing to put their life on the line for their freedom. It is our hope that this program will spread throughout the country and fill any gaps in care for the veterans. Regardless of political persuasion or beliefs or whether an individual supports a war or ‘conflict’ we must never fail to support those men and women of the armed services.”
Who Can Receive Chiropractic Care at Sunrise Chiropractic Care Center
When you receive care through Sunrise Chiropractic Care as a veteran, you are not required to pay anything for your visits. Some places will waive the initial visit fees, but require you to pay after that initial visit. Dr. Hatch wanted to go even further than free initial visits and has waived all fees related to his ongoing chiropractic care. He is one of the few local Chiropractic centers that offer this free service. We asked Dr. Hatch what the criteria was to be allowed to get free treatment. He said that this program is setup for men and women that have served in Iraq or Afghanistan after 911. They can be either active duty or retired. The chiropractic care doesn’t have to be related to any injury received during duty either.
