Sherman College launches program to help military personnel with chiropractic care

December 31, 2012 – Earlier this month, Melanie Pelletier said good-bye to Sherman College of Chiropractic after 3.5 grueling years of year-round study, but she is leaving a legacy that will benefit many people for years to come.

Pelletier, originally from Maine but a current resident of Boiling Springs, is the impetus behind a recently launched initiative to provide discount chiropractic services to military men and women in Sherman College’s Chiropractic Health Center.

With a military ID, active members of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and National Guard pay only $10 for chiropractic care at the center where Sherman students intern under the supervision of licensed doctors. About 20,000 patients visit

the center annually.

The program is still new and was only implemented in September, but Dr. Claudia Seay, the lead chiropractor at the Health Center, said the number of military personnel receiving chiropractic services is already increasing.

Pelletier’s inspiration for the discount was close to home. Her husband, Josh Pelletier, is an active duty member of the S.C. Air National Guard. When they moved to South Carolina for Melanie, 26, to attend Sherman College, Josh was having trouble finding work as a mechanic and joined the National Guard for economic stability. He excelled, became a crew chief and was deployed to Afghanistan from April to August of 2012.
