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 at work to address 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!
