The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has recently added chiropractic services at a number of medical facilities throughout the country. This study is a first step in understanding how these services are working. We used a Web-based survey to question all chiropractors in the VHA. The responses showed that most chiropractors are similar in the types of examination and treatment procedures that they use. Most of the patients seen by chiropractors were sent by their primary care providers. The most common problem that these patients had was low back pain or neck pain.
