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!
