Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks alike. Current studies focused
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered
benefits of chiropractic care to which Lynchburg chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Palmer Chiropractic Center is the Lynchburg 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 at the
front in the VA care system while many veterans are venturing
outside that system for other care. A national study
of veterans discovered that 52% employed 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 much more
likely to use these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They seek Lynchburg 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 oftentimes 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 manage PTSD veterans to be sure they
are receiving all the care they require.
(2) Your Lynchburg chiropractor thinks each of our
Lynchburg 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 notorious for
interfering with daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are crucial daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were sent to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients increased
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 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center
offers such pain decrasing, strength increasing
care for Lynchburg back pain sufferers, too!
