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 focused
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Sandy Springs chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Cross Chiropractic Center is the Sandy Springs 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 going
outside that system for additional care. A national survey
of veterans found 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% said they are interested in trying
at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more
likely to try these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They pursue Sandy Springs chiropractic
care outside the routine 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 frequently 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 these overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to carefully diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they
are getting all the care they need.
(2) Your Sandy Springs chiropractor considers each of our
Sandy Springs back pain patients’ other issues in the same way to maximize
positive clinical outcomes.
IMPROVING STRENGTH IN LOW BACK PAIN SUFFERING VETERANS
One positive clinical outcome sought
by all back pain sufferers 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 crucial daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 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 improved 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. Cross Chiropractic Center
offers such pain decrasing, strength growing
care for Sandy Springs back pain sufferers, too!
