    tricare and chiropracters (sp?)

    Advertisements
    do any of you ladies know if Tricare covers visits to chiropractors or not? and would those kinds of Drs be able to help if you were having problems with your rhomboid muscles cause my shoulder has been bothering me for a while now. i dont know whats causing it either. i do stretches and all but certain movements make it start to cramp up and i have to get my hubby to massage it out alot. i even went to the spa and got a deep tissue massage and she could even tell.

    Nope - not covered. Last I heard, chiropractors were considered "alternative" medicine... I had a chiropractor in Washington, he was phenomenal Nothing alternative about him!

    I know the guy down the street from where I work, has a special right now... $25.00 for x-rays and first visit. I am going to check it out, I'm thinking it will help with my headaches as I beleive they are more tension / stress related.. I'd check around.

    ok well thats a good idea. but would i have to go thru my PCM or do you think i could just call on my own? if tricare is definitely not gonna cover it then i wouldnt think i would have to go thru my PCM.
