Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks correspondingly. Current studies focused
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered
benefits of chiropractic care to which Colorado Springs chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping
with pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is the Colorado Springs chiropractic pain and
stress relieving 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 additional care. A national survey
of veterans found that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health options 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% reported they are interested in undertaking
at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more
likely to try these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They seek Colorado 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 oftentimes help. Veterans notably
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which complicates
their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for such overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to fastidiously diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they
are receiving all the care they require.
(2) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor considers each of our
Colorado 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 wanted
by all back pain sufferers is to perform activities of
daily living as they need and want. Back pain is notorious for
interfering with daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are vital 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 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
offers such pain decrasing, strength growing
care for Colorado Springs back pain sufferers, too!
