I don’t think there are many people who would try to doubt the dedication and support that our military provide to our families, communities, and country. As a Houston chiropractic care expert, I know that these brave men and women need our support. In today’s world, they are a critical part of our security. They take care of us.
We need to take care of them, too.
Whether a career military professional or coming out of a short stint of active duty, we find that many members of the military have problems with their posture, back, and central nervous system. This may sometimes show itself as being tied to a sore back, but there are many other manifestations of “vertebral subluxation” or nerve interference in the spine.
What can lead to vertebral subluxation in military professionals?
There are a variety of ways that vertebral subluxation can occur, particularly in military professionals. They include:
- Extended periods of extensive physical exertion
- High stress situations
- Dramatic changes in sleep schedules
“Coming home” is another big one. Here’s why.
When military professionals re-enter civilian life, we see a tremendous spike in stress, anxiety, and frustration. Heading home from a tour of duty has been described as simply going from one foreign territory to another because of how different military life can be compared to civilian life. Often, the lack of a regimented schedule and chain of command cause significant fluctuations in eating patterns, sleeping patterns, behavior, and physical activity. These swings can cause nerve interference (vertebral subluxations) when the spine is out of alignment and the body isn’t communicating clearly between the central nervous system and the vital organs.
Here is where chiropractic care comes in.
Restoring the body’s optimal health through the removal of vertebral subluxations is a pivotal part of chiropractic care. Many “traditional” chiropractors do this through the fairly well known “neck crack” and “back pop” adjustments that leave patients in short-term pain or at least feeling sore for several days.
Unfortunately, the anxiety associated with these traditional methods can steer potential patients away. The pain and soreness can cause new patients to cancel future appointments.
Dr. Ennis is the Houston Chiropractic Care Expert
NUCCA Chiropractic Care is a modern, technologically advanced process that eliminates the “pop and snap” adjustments that push people away from care. In fact, the majority of Dr. Ennis’s patients in Houston don’t even FEEL the adjustment beyond some light, steady pressure for a few moments. It really is something to see for yourself. We even offer Houston chiropractic care workshops so that you can come in, meet our team, ask questions, and get an idea of how our care works BEFORE you make an appointment.
Military personnel seeking Houston chiropractic care should complete a new patient exam so that they can get a better idea of how their posture, spine, and central nervous system are positioned to enable the body to function as a self-healing entity. NUCCA Chiropractic Care doesn’t require as many visits as “traditional” chiropractic care, either.
