Johnson Chiropractic 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 focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Richmond chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and coping with pain. Johnson Chiropractic is the Richmond 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 additional care. A national study of veterans found that 52% used complementary and integrated health options to manage 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 approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more likely to try these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans are not unlike you! They seek Richmond chiropractic care outside the usual 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 be sure they are receiving all the necessary care. (2) Your Richmond chiropractor considers each of our Richmond 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 sought by all back pain sufferers is to perform 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 crucial daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were assigned to chiropractic care or a wait list for 4 weeks. The chiropractic patients bettered 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 hurt 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.  Johnson Chiropractic offers such pain reducing, strength growing care for Richmond back pain sufferers, too!
