Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying.
Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and
non-military folks alike. New studies focused
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Groton chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is the Groton chiropractic pain and
stress relief center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing veterans’ needs. Medicine is at the
front in the VA care system while many veterans are going
outside that system for additional care. A national study
of veterans found that 52% used 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 undertaking
at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more
likely to try these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans
are not unlike you! They pursue Groton 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 frequently 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 such overlying issues. Chiropractors
in the VA System would want to fastidiously diagnose
and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they
are getting all the care they need.
(2) Your Groton chiropractor thinks each of our
Groton 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 sought
by all back pain sufferers is to perform activities of
daily living as they want and need. Back pain is notorious for
interfering with daily activities. For veterans,
lifting, endurance and balance are crucial daily activities.
Back pain suffering veterans were sent 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 reduced
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 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. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
offers such pain decrasing, strength increasing
care for Groton back pain sufferers, too!
