Our Story

PainFreeMilitary.com was created to give back to active duty military, veterans and their families.

Dr. Gibson grew up as an Army brat. Born at Fort Benning in Atlanta, GA and being carted around the county and Korea all Don and his brothers knew were the military lifestyle.

Dr. Gibson’s father Frank was a 1961 West Point graduate. Frank was commissioned in the Artillery Branch in which he served during his first tour in Vietnam. His experiences there led him to transfer into the Transportation Corp Branch in which he served for the remainder of his distinguished 20-year military career. His Army career included Ranger School, a company command in Vietnam Nam, Battalion Commands in Vietnam and Korea, teaching assignments at the Command and General Staff College and twice as an Assistant Football Coach at Army. His accomplishments were recognized by many awards and decorations including the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star Medal (2), Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal (7 Campaigns), Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, Parachutist Badge and Ranger Tab. He also earned a Master’s Degree from Georgia Tech. Frank retired with the rank of Lt Colonel in 1981 and then began a very successful second career in real estate in Orange County, Southern California.

Throughout the 20 years of service one thing was consistent, the frustration with the health care system for active duty and retired military. He often said, “All they want to do is drug me or cut me”. They did both! His surgeries include a cervical fusion, lumbar laminectomy and multiple knee surgeries.

Unfortunately, our experience with treating active duty patients and their families shows the frustration is more the norm and not the exception.

PainFreeMilitary.com was created for our military members (active and retired) and their families. Our mission is to provide accessible musculoskeletal treatment. We also provide benefit (VA and Tricare) education.

The doctors at PainFreeMilitary.com are members of the Patriot Project which is a non-profit network of doctors who provide chiropractic care to all Active Military, their Families, Wounded Warriors and All Gold Star Dependents.

We are also providers for TriWest. This allows most VA insured veterans to receive 12-18 Chiropractic visits a year.

Also, as a medical corporation, Belleview Spine and Wellness, is in network with Tricare to provide therapy and regenerative medicine.
