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!
