Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and
non-military folks correspondingly. New studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered
benefits of chiropractic care to which Ashburn chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is the Ashburn 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 going
outside that system for additional care. A national survey
of veterans discovered that 52% used complementary
and integrated health approaches to deal with
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 approaches: 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 pursue Ashburn 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 complicates
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into
consideration these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System will want to fastidiously diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they
are getting all the necessary care.
(2) Your Ashburn chiropractor considers each of our
Ashburn 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 known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are vital daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were assigned 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 reduced
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 experience pain and want some relief.
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. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
uses such pain decrasing, strength growing
care for Ashburn back pain sufferers, too!
