stress relief center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is at
work to address veterans’ needs. Medicine is forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are going
outside that system for other care. A national study
of veterans discovered that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health approaches to manage
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation leading
the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation,
and 25% yoga. 84% reported 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 pursue St. Francisville chiropractic
care outside the regular 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 oftentimes help. Veterans notably
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which complicates
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into
consideration these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System will want to fastidiously diagnose
and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to be sure they
are receiving all the necessary care.
(2) Your St. Francisville chiropractor considers each of our
St. Francisville back pain patients’ other issues in the same way to maximize
positive clinical outcomes.
IMPROVING STRENGTH IN LOW BACK PAIN SUFFERING VETERANS
One positive clinical outcome sought
by all back pain sufferers is to perform activities of
daily living as they need and want. Back pain is known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are vital daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic
care or a wait list for four weeks. The chiropractic patients bettered
their pulling strength by 5.08 kgs while the wait list group’s pull strength dropped
by 7.43 kgs. Trunk muscle endurance, disability, pain intensity and fear
avoidance behavior all improved 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 last 30 days. (4) Chiropractic care for post-surgical continued pain is showing
itself to be beneficial. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
uses such pain reducing, strength growing
care for St. Francisville back pain sufferers, too!
