Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks correspondingly. New studies focused
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Manahawkin chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is the Manahawkin chiropractic pain and
stress relief center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is at
work to address 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% 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 trying
at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more
likely to try these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are not unlike you! They seek Manahawkin 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 takes into
consideration these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System will want to carefully diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they
are getting all the necessary care.
(2) Your Manahawkin chiropractor considers each of our
Manahawkin 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 notorious for
interfering with daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are key daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were assigned to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients improved
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 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 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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
uses such pain reducing, strength increasing
care for Manahawkin back pain sufferers, too!
