Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying. Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and non-military folks alike. New studies centered on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Easley chiropractic care patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing with pain. Young Chiropractic is the Easley chiropractic pain and stress relieving 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 other care. A national study of veterans found that 52% used complementary and integrated health approaches to address their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation topping 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 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 Easley 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 particularly suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into consideration such overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System would want to fastidiously diagnose and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they are receiving all the care they need. (2) Your Easley chiropractor considers each of our Easley 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 be able to do activities of daily living as they want and need. 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 four weeks. The chiropractic patients improved 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 hurt 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. Young Chiropractic offers such pain reducing, strength increasing care for Easley back pain sufferers, too!
