In 2013, the number of veterans suffering from musculoskeletal pain was approximately 5.7 million. 

The cost of treating our nation's heros has risen to over $49 billion/year.

Evidence shows that mind-body therapies are the most effective way of eliminating pain, and significantly reduce the costs of care
