Paul Gardner Veterans Relief Foundation
The Paul Gardner Veterans Pain Relief Foundation was conceived during a meeting at the Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic when George Blackard, Commander of American Legion Andrew Pearson Post 117 Veterans, expressed his grief over the loss of a young veteran from an accidental medication overdose. The clinic doctors were in the midst of formalizing their approach to chronic pain by establishing a pain relief clinic combining chiropractic treatment, massage, acupuncture and regenerative injection therapies. This tragic loss led us to realize that a larger population of veterans was seriously struggling and greatly in need of non-narcotic options for rehabilitation and relief from chronic pain. With the permission and support of his family, the foundation is named in the memory of this courageous young veteran.
To facilitate access to non-narcotic pain treatments for veteran by providing financial resources for access to safe, effective treatments not yet approved by the VA and by providing high quality data supporting the benefits of non-narcotic treatments in pain reduction, increased function, leading to an overall enhanced quality of life and mental emotional well-being.

“We have only one truly sacred obligation – to equip those we send to war and to take care of them and their families when they come home. . . We can never fully repay you. We will do everything in our power to meet this obligation and we will not forget. You are the heart and soul of this country, the literal spine-you are America’s spine, as well as America’s promise.”
