Chiropractic Care Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

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 notably 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 help.  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!
