The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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. 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 approaches: 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 necessary care. (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 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 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!
