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 centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Baton Rouge chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is the Baton Rouge 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 additional care. A national survey
of veterans discovered that 52% used complementary
and integrated health options to deal with
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation on top of
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 far more
likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are not unlike you! They seek Baton Rouge 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 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 would want to fastidiously diagnose
and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to be sure they
are receiving all the care they need.
(2) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor thinks each of our
Baton Rouge back pain patients’ other issues in the same way to maximize
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 known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are crucial daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were assigned to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 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 relief.
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. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
offers such pain decrasing, strength increasing
care for Baton Rouge back pain sufferers, too!
