Chiropractic Services Relieve Low Back Pain in Female Veterans

Chiropractic Services Relieve Low Back Pain in Female Veterans: Study Legislation to expand access to chiropractic in the VA gains new momentum
Arlington, Va.- A new study finds that female veterans—one of the fastest growing populations receiving treatment through the Veterans Administration (VA) health care system—experience improvement in low back pain with a course of chiropractic care, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).  Published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, the study’s authors note that musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain are the most common ailments among female veterans. They also report that female veterans on average access VA medical care more frequently than male veterans, have a higher outpatient cost per patient and have a higher rate of service-connected disability.  "Although further research is warranted," the study says, "chiropractic care may be of value in contributing to the pain management needs of this unique patient population."  Chiropractic services are one of the conservative (non-drug) treatment options for pain offered in the VA. They are available at half of the major VA medical facilities in the United States.  Efforts to expand chiropractic services to veterans recently gained new momentum in Congress. Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA), ranking member of the Veterans Subcommittee on Health, and Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), have joined forces to broaden the range of services and care options available to veterans by supporting the Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act (H.R. 103). The bill—supported by several major veterans groups—would require chiropractic services to be offered at all U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers and codify chiropractic care as a standard benefit for veterans using VA health care. There is a bipartisan companion bill in the Senate (S. 609).  "Chiropractic's non-drug, non-addictive and noninvasive approach to pain management can help alleviate disabling pain and improve function," says ACA President David Herd, DC. "That's why chiropractors are an important part of the health care team in the VA."  Chiropractors focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system, most often treating complaints such as back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. Widely known for their expertise in spinal manipulation, chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, and to provide dietary and lifestyle counseling.

CBD could be the best solution for you.

 

Do you suffer from any of these symptoms?

Do you suffer from any of these symptoms?

CBD could be the best solution for you.

Healthcare Associates of Florida, Inc. (HCA) in Coral Springs Florida is now marketing the only pharmaceutical-grade 99% pure cannabidiol (CBD) currently available - a rich full spectrum Cannabidiol oil that is packed with the nutrients from the hemp plant.  HCA’s mission is to offer users a safe, effective alternative to prescription painkillers, other toxic prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs that contain harsh chemical compounds alien to nature’s perfect remedies. 

Extracting our cannabidiol (CBD) from the hemp plant is a costly process. Cannabinoids have two famous components, THC and CBD. Of which, the former has psychoactive properties which by law is illegal in many places if there is more than .03% of the THC component in the product. Thus, the legal CBD must be extracted in such a way that it contains less than .03% of THC. The CBD products offered by Healthcare Associates of Florida are non-psychoactive, and acceptable within all 50 states of the United States.


HCA's CBD Oil is a safe, effective alternative to prescription painkillers, other toxic prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs that contain harsh chemical compounds alien to nature's perfect remedies. The marijuana plant has long been known to have medical benefits but it has remained illegal in many areas because of the psychoactive properties in THC which is one of its components. Now that the methodology has been developed to separate the CBD from the THC, the health benefits can now be made available without restriction.



CBD Oil has been shown to be very effective in treating a wide range of ailments.  Conditions responding favorably to CBD include diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections, alcoholism, PSTD, neurological disorders, alzheimers disease, depression, menstrual cramps, migraine headaches and related conditions.



How does CBD work in the body?  It is now understood that the human body has an Endocannabinoid system, which is why quality CBD has been shown to be an effective form of alternative treatment. The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. CBD specifically interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors that send signals to wake up and strengthen the immune system naturally. The boost of the immune system can help the body fight off the bad cells that are weakening it in the first place.



To find out more about the health benefits of HCA CBD Oil products, contact the Healthcare Associates of Florida, Inc. corporate office at (954) 755-2644 or visit www.HCA-CBD.com for more information and to order CBD Oil products.  You can also send a text HCACBD to the number 44222 for more complete information sent directly to your phone for review.

Chiropractic For Persistent Headache


Most people are aware that chiropractors are experts in dealing with back issues. As shown in a recent case study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, chiropractors are also equally trained in successfully diagnosing and treating many cases of headaches. In this case study, chiropractic care was delivered to a 54-year-old woman suffering from chronic debilitating headaches for the previous 11 months. After just five chiropractic manipulative therapy and adjunct treatments over 6 weeks, the patient experienced resolution of the headaches. If you or someone you know if suffering from headaches, call your local chiropractor today for a no obligation consultation.

Vitamin E Helpful In Treating Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease


In a new double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, randomized clinical trial involving 613 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Vitamin E was shown to slow the functional decline of Alzheimer's. AD affects approximately 5 million older Americans and is marked by irreversible, progressive deterioration in memory and thinking skills. In this study, mild to moderate AD patients received either 2,000 IUs of vitamin E daily or a placebo. Over the average follow-up time of 2.3 years, researchers estimated those patients receiving the vitamin E had slowed their functional decline in activities of daily living (ADLs) by 19%. ADLs include things such as making meals, getting dressed and holding a conversation. According to researchers, this translated into a delay in progression of mild to moderate AD by 6.2 months. Another significant finding was that caregiver time was reduced by approximately 2 hours per day in the vitamin E group. Previous studies have also shown Vitamin E effective in those with moderately severe AD. It's important to note that those considering vitamin E supplementation to treat AD only do so under the supervision of a physician as vitamin E can interfere with blood thinners, cholesterol drugs and other medications.
