Pain Free Patriots

One in five veterans living in Minnesota are dealing with some sort of pain or disability due to their time serving our country. Pain Free Patriots—now a part of Living Word’s Wellness Center—is working hard to remedy this.

Our goal is to help Veterans return to their daily lives as quickly and healthy as possible, using the latest technologies and best practices.

In connection with The Ultimate Wellness Center, Pain Free Patriots is offering veterans the opportunity to move toward health and restoration. Veterans may apply for medical grants that allow them to be treated at no cost to them. As the Pain Free Patriots website states, “Our goal is to help Veterans return to their daily lives as quickly and healthy as possible, using the latest technologies and best practices.”

Founder Doug Huseby started the program in 2010 with the intent to give back to those who gave so much for their country. He received a deferment during Vietnam and that sticks with him. “If it wasn’t for the veterans, I wouldn’t have [my freedom.]” Huseby recognized that conventional methods of restoration and healing, which often involved addictive painkillers, don’t always work. He found a way to help them heal by working on the root of the issue, not simply addressing the symptoms of pain.

Chiropractor Sheldon Osvold stated, “For me, [this is] a way of helping people who are underserved…. Not necessarily that they don’t have adequate care, just that they don’t get this type of care, and this allows them to have access to it at a reasonable rate. I can’t take away that you were blown through a wall and you’ve got significant structural damage, but if I can make your life as pain free as possible. That’s my goal.”

If you are a veteran and in pain, contact Chris Barber at 952.746.3174 or chris@painfreepatriots.org for more information.

Changing the lives of veterans from pain-filled to pain-free is just another way Living Word is reaching people, touching lives and making a difference.
