Free Screenings for Veterans at Bianco Family Chiropractic to Promote New Law @ Bianco Family Chiropractic
Jun 26 all-day

In late March, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, giving military veterans greater access to non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief through chiropractic care at more Veterans’ Affairs (VA) facilities throughout the country.

With the new measure in place, Chadds Ford-based chiropractor, Dr. Tom Bianco, is on a crusade to educate local veterans and their families about the benefits of chiropractic care, dispel concerns about treatment, and introduce them to the highly-specialized Gonstead technique.

“This legislation is a great start in continuing to care for those who served our nation,” said,” Dr Bianco. “Many of our veterans suffer from extreme back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions resulting from their service. However, there is reluctance in many to seek chiropractic treatment out of fear and misconceptions. Having used Gonstead for more than 25 years of practice, I have genuinely healed people who suffered debilitating pain and had no hope. I want to make a difference”

 Now through August 31st, Dr, Thomas Bianco of Bianco Family Chiropractic is offering free individual evaluations, diagnostic X-rays, and personalized exercise regimens to get military heroes on their way to feeling good.

Currently, veterans have access to chiropractic services at more than 70 major VA treatment facilities in the United States, but nearly 100 VA sites offer little to no availability. This disparity comes at a time when the need for drug-free options for musculoskeletal conditions is urgent. VA data cites “diseases of the musculoskeletal system/connective system” such as back pain as the No. 1 ailment experienced by veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who access VA treatment. Moreover, surveys show that, like the civilian population, many veterans struggle with prescription painkiller (opioid) addiction.

“The Gonstead Technique is the gold standard of chiropractic care,” said Dr. Bianco. “It goes beyond what many chiropractors consider a spinal assessment. It is such a specialized approach that I am one of fourteen physicians in Pennsylvania with the credentials to practice it.”

Escape Brandywine is an escape room experience, set inside the historic Chads House, c.1725,  located along site of the Battle of Brandywine. This escape room program is unlike any other, since it places you directly inside an authentic historical space with a Revolutionary War mission!

Escape Brandywine places participants into roles of spies on the eve of the Battle of Brandywine, and charges them with finding General Howe's battle plans that have been hidden inside the Chads House for safe keeping. Using real Revolutionary War spy techniques, codes and cyphers, players will have 60 minutes to solve puzzles that will allow them to locate the plans and escape the house to deliver the plans to George Washington!
