Satterwhite 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. Current studies focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed benefits of chiropractic care to which Oxford chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic is the Oxford 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 venturing outside that system for additional care. A national study of veterans discovered that 52% employed complementary and integrated health options to deal with their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation on top of the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% reported they are interested in trying at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more likely to use these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans are not unlike you! They seek Oxford 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 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 coordinate care of PTSD veterans to ensure they are receiving all the care they need. (2) Your Oxford chiropractor thinks each of our Oxford 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 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 key daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic care or a wait list for four weeks. The chiropractic patients bettered 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 hurt and want some help.  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.  Satterwhite Chiropractic offers such pain decrasing, strength increasing care for Oxford back pain sufferers, too!
