Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

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 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 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!
