Chiropractic In The Military: Study Shows Reduced Suicide Risk

Chiropractic Jacksonville FL Chiropractic In The Military Study Shows Reduced Suicide Risks

This study was published by the Journal of General Internal Medicine and involved 142,539 active duty Army personnel presenting with chronic pain after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan between 2008-14. Some of the participants received nonpharmacological treatments such as chiropractic care in Jacksonville, acupuncture, massage, and exercise therapy. Others engaged in drug-based forms of care.

After analyzing the data, researchers noted a connection between chiropractic in the military and other forms of non-drug military care and reduced incidences of self-inflicted injuries, suicide ideations, and suicide attempts.

This is important because prior research reports that chronic pain is the most common condition among Army soldiers utilizing the Polytrauma System of Care within one year of post-deployment. Polytrauma indicates injury to multiple body parts and systems, such as when a soldier is in a blast-related event.
