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 centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which Toronto chiropractic care
patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is the Toronto 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 forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are venturing
outside that system for other care. A national study
of veterans found that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health options to address
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation topping
the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation,
and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in undertaking
at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more
likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans
are not unlike you! They pursue Toronto chiropractic
care outside the routine 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 frequently 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 manage PTSD veterans to ensure they
are getting all the care they need.
(2) Your Toronto chiropractor considers each of our
Toronto 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 need and want. 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 dropped
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 experience pain 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
offers such pain decrasing, strength increasing
care for Toronto back pain sufferers, too!
