Hollstrom & Associates Inc Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying. Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and non-military folks correspondingly. Current studies focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Largo chiropractic care patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is the Largo chiropractic pain and stress relieving 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 survey of veterans found that 52% employed complementary and integrated health approaches to manage their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation leading the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in trying at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more likely to try these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans are not unlike you! They seek Largo chiropractic care outside the usual system at times, too!

HELPING VETERANS REGAIN THEIR STRENGTH

Veterans with back pain like other back pain sufferers find that their strength and quality of life decrease. 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 Largo chiropractor considers each of our Largo 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 all back pain sufferers want is to perform activities of daily living as they want and need. Back pain is known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans, lifting, endurance and balance are crucial daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were assigned to chiropractic care or a wait list for four weeks. The chiropractic patients increased 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 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.  Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses such pain reducing, strength growing care for Largo back pain sufferers, too!
