Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and
non-military folks correspondingly. Recent studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered
benefits of chiropractic care to which Williamson chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. Apple Country Chiropractic is the Williamson chiropractic pain and
stress relief 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 study
of veterans found 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% said 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 Williamson chiropractic
care outside the routine 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 accounts for such 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 need.
(2) Your Williamson chiropractor thinks each of our
Williamson 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 sought
by all back pain sufferers is to be able to do activities of
daily living as they need and want. Back pain is notorious for
interfering with daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are vital daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were sent 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 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 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. Apple Country Chiropractic
offers such pain reducing, strength growing
care for Williamson back pain sufferers, too!
