As a result of years in the military, many military members are left with back pain, neck pain or knee pain due to their time in the service. According to a study done by the Naval Health Research Center, back pain is the leading cause of pain or illness in the military. Not only is this serious and can lead to less ability to work, but it also can lead to a future disability.
Because of carrying heavy packs during PT, as well as less than ideal conditions in terms of sleeping, back pain is something that almost every military member has faced at least one time in his or her enlistment. After finishing active duty, veterans are left with pain and illnesses that don’t have to be for life. Luckily for veterans, the VA offers referrals to their patients to get the best chiropractic treatment available. If you need more information on how your VA health care on Oahu works, click here!
