In February, Department of Veterans Affairs Under Secretary of Health David Shulkin announced his intent to move into the Secretary role. That leaves Dr. Poonam Alaigh as the acting Under Secretary, and she is reportedly particularly supportive of chiropractors. Whether you're a veteran or not, this should be comforting news if you experience back pain.
Dr. Alaigh particularly showed her support for chiropractors in a press release for 2017's Chiropractor of the Year Award. This honor may have come from the American Chiropractic Association, but it still allowed her to reference the high value chiropractic care can bring. The award was also significant for her organization, since it went to the Veterans Affairs chiropractic services national program director, Dr. Anthony Lisi.
