Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks alike. New studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Minster chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Minster Chiropractic Center is the Minster 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 forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are venturing
outside that system for other care. A national study
of veterans found that 52% used complementary
and integrated health options to deal with
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 undertaking
at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more
likely to try these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans
are not unlike you! They pursue Minster 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 notably
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for such overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System will want to fastidiously diagnose
and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to ensure they
are receiving all the care they require.
(2) Your Minster chiropractor considers each of our
Minster 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 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 vital daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic
care or a wait list for four 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 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 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. Minster Chiropractic Center
uses such pain decrasing, strength increasing
care for Minster back pain sufferers, too!
