Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks alike. Recent studies focused
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which West Palm Beach chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. Chiropractic Care is the West Palm Beach chiropractic pain and
stress relief center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing veterans’ needs. Medicine is at the
front in the VA care system while many veterans are going
outside that system for other care. A national study
of veterans found that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health options to manage
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation on top of
the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation,
and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in trying
at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more
likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They seek West Palm Beach chiropractic
care outside the usual system at times, too!
HELPING VETERANS REGAIN THEIR STRENGTH
Veterans with back pain like other back pain sufferers find
that their strength and quality of life decrease. Chiropractic care can frequently help. Veterans particularly
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which complicates
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to carefully diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they
are getting all the care they require.
(2) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor thinks each of our
West Palm Beach back pain patients’ other issues in the same way to optimize
positive clinical outcomes.
IMPROVING STRENGTH IN LOW BACK PAIN SUFFERING VETERANS
One positive clinical outcome sought
by all back pain sufferers is to be able to do activities of
daily living as they need and want. Back pain is notorious for
interfering with daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are key daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were assigned to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients increased
their pulling strength by 5.08 kgs while the wait list group’s pull strength decreased
by 7.43 kgs. Trunk muscle endurance, disability, pain intensity and fear
avoidance behavior all got better with chiropractic care of
active military personnel with low back pain. (3) Plus, after back surgery,
some veterans will still experience pain and want some relief.
90.3% of VA chiropractors reported
seeing at least 1 post-back surgery fusion patient in the past
month. (4) Chiropractic care for post-surgical continued pain is showing
itself to be beneficial. Chiropractic Care
uses such pain reducing, strength increasing
care for West Palm Beach back pain sufferers, too!
