Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying. 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 venturing 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 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 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!
