Back And Neck Care Center 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. New studies centered on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Severna Park chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Back And Neck Care Center is the Severna Park 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 other care. A national survey of veterans found that 52% used complementary and integrated health approaches to manage 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 seek Severna Park 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 oftentimes help. Veterans notably suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into consideration these overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System will want to carefully diagnose and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to ensure they are getting all the care they need. (2) Your Severna Park chiropractor considers each of our Severna Park 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 wanted by all back pain sufferers is to be able to do activities of daily living as they need and want. 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 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 improved 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.  Back And Neck Care Center offers such pain reducing, strength growing care for Severna Park back pain sufferers, too!
