Stress of life and stress of military life are taxing. Chiropractic care offers relieving care to both military and non-military folks alike.

Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is the West Des Moines chiropractic pain and stress relieving center!

STRESS AND PAIN

Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is at work to address veterans’ needs. Medicine is forefront in the VA care system while many veterans are going outside that system for additional care. A national study of veterans discovered that 52% used complementary and integrated health options to deal with their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation topping 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 approaches: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were much more likely to try these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans are like you! They seek West Des Moines 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 frequently help. Veterans notably suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which causes difficulties with their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system accounts for such overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System would want to carefully diagnose and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they are receiving all the necessary care. (2) Your West Des Moines chiropractor considers each of our West Des Moines 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 be able to do 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 key daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were sent 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 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 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.  Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses such pain decrasing, strength increasing care for West Des Moines back pain sufferers, too!
