Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing. Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and non-military folks alike. New studies focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Nashua chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Moriarty Chiropractic is the Nashua 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 venturing outside that system for additional care. A national study of veterans discovered that 52% employed complementary and integrated health options 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% reported they are interested in trying 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 like you! They seek Nashua 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 notably suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with 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 be sure they are receiving all the care they need. (2) Your Nashua chiropractor considers each of our Nashua 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 wanted by all back pain sufferers is to perform activities of daily living as they need and want. Back pain is known to reduce ability to daily activities. For veterans, lifting, endurance and balance are vital daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were sent to chiropractic care or a wait list for 4 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. Moriarty Chiropractic uses such pain reducing, strength growing care for Nashua back pain sufferers, too!
