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 sought
by all back pain sufferers 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!
