Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 correspondingly. Current studies focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans revealed benefits of chiropractic care to which Brooks chiropractic care patients can relate: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing with pain. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is the Brooks 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 options to address their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation leading the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in trying at least one of these approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more likely to use these outside the VA System. (1) Veterans are not unlike you! They seek Brooks 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 these overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System will want to carefully diagnose and manage PTSD veterans to be sure they are receiving all the necessary care. (2) Your Brooks chiropractor considers each of our Brooks 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 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 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 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 hurt and want some relief.  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.  Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses such pain decrasing, strength increasing care for Brooks back pain sufferers, too!
