The spines of our veterans need good
care. Veterans need access to chiropractic care - just like their fellow
Montreal chiropractic spine pain patients - and now can get
it. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is the Montreal back pain specialty center for
spine pain, back pain, neck pain, arm pain and leg pain relief for
Montreal veterans and Montreal back pain patients.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers relieving Montreal chiropractic care to any Montreal
back pain patients seeking back pain relief!
WHAT HAPPENS TO THEIR SPINES?
Data from the Veterans’ Administration (VA), “diseases of the musculoskeletal
system/connective system” like back pain are the foremost
problems for veterans coming back from the Iraq and
Afghanistan wars. (1) To what is it credited? Most of us would assume
it’s due to carrying heavy backpacks
and weapons. (2) One study reports that back pain is reported
more by military construction and law enforcement personnel.
(3) Reason for back pain
for non-military folks like Montreal residents apply to military,
too, like injury, posture, daily activity, weight, stress, genetic defects,
RELIEF FOR A VETERAN
One military officer with a 20-year history of
mechanical back pain secondary to an injury sustained while
on active military duty experienced intermittent
radiation of numbness and tingling involving the right lower extremity distal
to the knee. Chiropractic care delivered
him a 25% decrease in low back pain severity and a 22% lessening
in perceived disability. The course of conservative,
chiropractic management involved 10 treatments of
lumbar flexion/distraction and activity modification in eight weeks. Even though he’d had this pain a long time, he gained
relief. (4) After 20 years, such decreases in pain and
disability would surely be appreciated by
Montreal back pain sufferers, too.
BENEFICIAL CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR VETERANS’ SPINES INSTEAD OF
1999 marked the year of the US law permitting
the VA to offer chiropractic care via private sector
chiropractors. (5) From 2004 (the year the law was voted
for that chiropractic was to be accessible in the VA system)
to 2015, annual chiropractic VA patients increased by 821%,
chiropractic visits by 694%, number of clinics by 9%, chiropractic employees by
21%. (5) Currently, 70 VA facilities have chiropractors on
staff. (1) Nearly 100 VA facilities still have little to no
availability. (2) If a VA facility does not have a
chiropractor(s) on staff, veterans (if they ask) are allowed to get
a referral to a local chiropractor like yours at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic for care. Many
do not know about this perk or that they can be helped with chiropractic care. Chiropractic as a profession and
your Montreal chiropractic persist in trying
to get the word out to the public about how it can reduce
musculoskeletal pain, back pain, sciatica, neck pain and arm radiculopathy, how
it can help with pain management. Today, many veterans - like many others in
the general population - are struggling with prescription
opioid pain drugs. (6) The opioid epidemic is everywhere; chiropractic care may help
curb its effects for military veterans as it does for
general population Montreal pain patients.
ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC EXPANDS IN THE U.S.
Chiropractic researchers strive to ensure that military personnel have access to chiropractic care. One
group created an integrated care pathway for doctors of
chiropractic, primary care providers, and mental health professionals who direct
the care of veterans with low back pain, with or without mental health
comorbidity, within Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care facilities.
(7) Recently, the US House sanctioned expansion
of chiropractic services in the VA. Availability is to expand
to at least 2 medical centers/clinics in each Veterans Integrated
Service Network by December 31, 2019, and be at 50% of them by December 31, 2021.
