Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

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!
