Malverne Health & Wellness Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying. Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and non-military folks alike. Recent studies focused on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Malverne chiropractic care patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing with pain. Malverne Health & Wellness is the Malverne 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 going outside that system for other care. A national survey of veterans found that 52% used 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% 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 outside the VA System. (1) Veterans are like you! They seek Malverne chiropractic care outside the routine 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 frequently help. Veterans notably 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 manage PTSD veterans to ensure they are receiving all the necessary care. (2) Your Malverne chiropractor considers each of our Malverne 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 all back pain sufferers want is to be able to do activities of daily living as they want and need. Back pain is notorious for interfering with 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 bettered 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 improved 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 past month. (4) Chiropractic care for post-surgical continued pain is showing itself to be beneficial.  Malverne Health & Wellness offers such pain decrasing, strength growing care for Malverne back pain sufferers, too!
