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% employed complementary
and integrated health approaches to deal with
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation leading
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 Buffalo, NY chiropractic
care outside the usual 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 takes into
consideration these 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 Buffalo, NY chiropractor thinks each of our
Buffalo, NY 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 be able to do activities of
daily living as they want and need. Back pain is known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are vital daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were sent 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 dropped
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 hurt 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. Disc Centers Of America
offers such pain decrasing, strength growing
