Acupuncture

Acupuncture therapy has been shown to be effective in treating symptoms resulting from a wide range of conditions. At the Cincinnati VA Medical Center and Fort Thomas, this traditional treatment is usually provided alongside more conventional modern medicine.

Chiropractice Care

Chiropractic services are part of the standard Medical Benefits Package available to all eligible Veterans. Similar to other specialties, access to VA chiropractic services is by referral from a VA primary care or specialty provider. VA provides these services on-site at the Cincinnati VAMC and Fort Thomas.

Gerofit - a component of Well-being

Gerofit is a supervised exercise program for Veterans, 65 and older that was developed at the VA Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, in 1986. As a part of Gerofit, you are given a personal exercise program based on your physical profile and goals.

Residential Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Injury (TBI) Programs

The Residential PTSD programs are comprised of 2 intensive 7-week programs for male and female Veterans and an intensive 8-week program for Veterans with both PTSD and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Each program provides assessment and brief treatment of PTSD. During the first week in the program, Veterans receive a multidisciplinary assessment to evaluate their readiness for the program. The trauma is addressed using Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) in individual and group sessions. Additional therapy groups include Anger Management, Relaxation Skill Training, Assertiveness Training, Distress Tolerance, Communication Training, Sleep Management, and Health Issues. Veterans in the PTSD/TBI program receive additional services including a full neuropsychological examination, speech pathology evaluation and treatment, and occupational and physical therapy as needed.

Men and Women Veterans of all eras are eligible for both programs.

Domiciliary Care Program

The Domiciliary is designed to provide state-of-the-art, high-quality residential rehabilitation and treatment services for Veterans with multiple and severe medical conditions, mental illness, addiction, or psychosocial deficits. Program participants will identify and addresse goals of rehabilitation, recovery, health maintenance, improved quality of life, and community integration in addition to specific treatment of medical conditions, mental illnesses, addictive disorders and homelessness. The residential component emphasizes incorporation of clinical treatment gains into a lifestyle of self-care and personal responsibility.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy (PT) helps Veterans who are experiencing pain, impairment or disability and can significantly improve their quality of life. If you or a loved one is looking for an evidence-based, cost-effective, conservative approach to health care, then a physical therapist may be right for you.
