Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks alike. Recent studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. Spinal Care Clinic is the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic pain and
stress relieving center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing veterans’ needs. Medicine is forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are going
outside that system for additional care. A national survey
of veterans found that 52% used complementary
and integrated health options to address
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation leading
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 options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more
likely to try these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They pursue Burlington and Hamilton 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 causes difficulties with
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to fastidiously diagnose
and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to ensure they
are receiving all the care they require.
(2) Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor thinks each of our
Burlington and Hamilton 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 all back pain sufferers want is to perform activities of
daily living as they want and need. Back pain is known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are key daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were sent to chiropractic
care or a wait list for four weeks. The chiropractic patients improved
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 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. Spinal Care Clinic
offers such pain reducing, strength growing
care for Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers, too!
