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 Plainville chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Layden Chiropractic is the Plainville chiropractic pain and
stress relief center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is at
work to address veterans’ needs. Medicine is at the
front in the VA care system while many veterans are venturing
outside that system for additional care. A national survey
of veterans discovered that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health options 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 undertaking
at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more
likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They pursue Plainville chiropractic
care outside the regular system at times, too!
HELPING VETERANS REGAIN THEIR STRENGTH
Veterans with back pain like other back pain sufferers lose their strength and quality
of life. Chiropractic care can frequently help. Veterans particularly
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into
consideration these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to fastidiously diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they
are getting all the necessary care.
(2) Your Plainville chiropractor thinks each of our
Plainville 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 wanted
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 crucial daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients bettered
their pulling strength by 5.08 kgs while the wait list group’s pull strength reduced
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 hurt and want some help.
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. Layden Chiropractic
uses such pain reducing, strength increasing
care for Plainville back pain sufferers, too!
