Spengel Chiropractic Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing. Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and non-military folks alike. New studies centered on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed benefits of chiropractic care to which McHenry chiropractic care patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Spengel Chiropractic is the McHenry 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 at the front 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 topping the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in undertaking at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more likely to use these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans are like you! They pursue McHenry 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 notably 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 would want to carefully diagnose and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to be sure they are getting all the care they need. (2) Your McHenry chiropractor thinks each of our McHenry 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 wanted 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 vital daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were assigned 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 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 help.  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.  Spengel Chiropractic uses such pain decrasing, strength increasing care for McHenry back pain sufferers, too!
