Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying.
Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and
non-military folks alike. Recent studies centered
on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed
benefits of chiropractic care to which La Grande chiropractic care
patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing
with pain. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is the La Grande chiropractic pain and
stress relieving center!
STRESS AND PAIN
Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing 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 found that 52% employed complementary
and integrated health approaches to deal with
their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation on top of
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 options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure,
reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more
likely to use these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans
are like you! They seek La Grande 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 oftentimes help. Veterans particularly
suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which complicates
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 necessary care.
(2) Your La Grande chiropractor thinks each of our
La Grande 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 perform activities of
daily living as they want and need. 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 allocated to chiropractic
care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients improved
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. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
offers such pain decrasing, strength increasing
care for La Grande back pain sufferers, too!
