Chiropractic care isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the needs of our active military and returning vets.
But The Patriot Project aims to do just that—make chiropractic care readily available for ALL active duty personnel, military veterans and their families, including all gold star dependents.
Founded in North Canton, project founders say that, while chiropractic care is included in veteran’s health benefits, it has not been made readily available to all wounded warriors, and some ailments currently treated with pain medication could be more conservatively treated with chiropractic care.
In just two years since founding the project, Dr. Tim Novelli has recruited more than 350 chiropractors from all 50 states, including more than 100 chiropractors from Ohio, each of whom treats at least one armed-service member per week at no charge. His good work has been awarded with a recent proclamation from North Canton Mayor David Held, as well as being named “Humanitarian of the Year” by Parker College of Chiropractic and Performance Health.
