Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and
non-military folks correspondingly. Current studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered
benefits of chiropractic care to which Baton Rouge chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is the Baton Rouge chiropractic pain and
stress relief center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing veterans’ needs. Medicine is forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are going
outside that system for other care. A national survey
of veterans discovered that 52% used complementary
and integrated health approaches to address
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 options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more
likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They pursue Baton Rouge chiropractic
care outside the regular system at times, too!
HELPING VETERANS REGAIN THEIR STRENGTH
Veterans with back pain like other back pain sufferers lose their strength and quality
of life. Chiropractic care can oftentimes help. Veterans particularly
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 will want to carefully diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they
are receiving all the care they need.
(2) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor considers each of our
Baton Rouge 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 key daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were allocated 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 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 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center
uses such pain decrasing, strength growing
care for Baton Rouge back pain sufferers, too!
