New Roads Chiropractic Center 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. Recent studies focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which New Roads chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing with pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center is the New Roads chiropractic pain and stress relief 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 survey of veterans discovered that 52% used complementary and integrated health options to deal with their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation topping the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% reported they are interested in undertaking at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more likely to try these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans are not unlike you! They pursue New Roads chiropractic care outside the routine 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 oftentimes help. Veterans particularly suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which complicates their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for these overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System would want to carefully diagnose and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to ensure they are receiving all the care they need. (2) Your New Roads chiropractor considers each of our New Roads 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 all back pain sufferers want is to be able to do activities of daily living as they want and need. Back pain is notorious for interfering with daily activities. For veterans, lifting, endurance and balance are vital daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were allocated 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 improved 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 last 30 days. (4) Chiropractic care for post-surgical continued pain is showing itself to be beneficial.  New Roads Chiropractic Center offers such pain reducing, strength increasing care for New Roads back pain sufferers, too!
