Shires Chiropractic Clinic offer FREE Chiropractic Treatment to British War Veterans from the Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The program was set up in the UK but has spread internationally. The aim for the Hands For Heroes Team is:
” To provide 9000 UK veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq operations access to £3.5 Million of free Chiropractic Care by the end of 2011 and every year there-after for the next 2 decades in order to relieve the destructive effects of physical, mental and chemical stress and trauma.”
We are keen to help to continue to make this goal a reality! If you or someone you know would like to find out more about receiving treatment please feel free to contact us. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions.
Why is it just Afghanistan and Iraq War Veterans that Qualify?
At Hands for Heroes we understand that many soldiers have made huge sacrifices outside of the recent Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts – World War 2, Korea, The Suez Crisis, Northern Ireland, The Falklands War to name just a few. In order to give an identity to this movement we have concentrated on the most recent conflicts. We trust that as the Movement grows and with demand and resources we can expand the scope of the initiative. Until then, if you are a veterans from a conflict outside of the scope of “Hands for Heroes” you could find a chiropractor near you who is in the scheme and ask if they would consider taking you on under the scheme – they may not be serving their full quota of Iraq/Afghanistan veterans, and it would be up to them to decide if they would accept you as a patient under the policy.
