Vancouver Disc Centers Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing. Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and non-military folks correspondingly. Current studies centered on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Vancouver chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Vancouver Disc Centers is the Vancouver 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 at the front in the VA care system while many veterans are going outside that system for additional care. A national study of veterans found that 52% used complementary and integrated health options to address 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% said 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 outside the VA System. (1) Veterans are like you! They pursue Vancouver chiropractic care outside the usual 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 such overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System would want to fastidiously diagnose and coordinate care of PTSD veterans to ensure they are receiving all the necessary care. (2) Your Vancouver chiropractor considers each of our Vancouver 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 wanted 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 key daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic care or a wait list for four weeks. The chiropractic patients improved their pulling strength by 5.08 kgs while the wait list group’s pull strength decreased 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 relief.  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.  Vancouver Disc Centers offers such pain reducing, strength increasing care for Vancouver back pain sufferers, too!
