SPINAL MANIPULATION: A Beneficial Choice for Relief of Back Pain, Better Quality of
Life, Reduced Risk of Tests and Prescriptions
Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) is a choice when it
comes to options for managing back pain, a choice
not all back pain patients are aware of but may
want to be. In a review of 83,025 insurance back pain claims,
28% of the patients underwent treatment with
SMT. Of them, 24% underwent SMT initially, 4% delayed using SMT,
and 72% didn’t undergo SMT at all. Caring
for initial back pain episodes
with spinal manipulation reduced the risk of imaging studies,
injection procedures, and/or back surgery by almost 30%
compared with no SMT.
Delayed SMT also raised the risk for these procedures. (1) A study of older
Medicare chronic low back pain sufferers who received long-term
care with SMT found that they described having
higher health-related quality of life and satisfaction with care than those who
had long-term care with prescription drug therapy.
(2) Older Medicare chronic low back pain patients who initially chose opioid
analgesic therapy reported a higher rate of adverse drug
events than the patients who chose SMT care. (3) Spinal manipulation is our “thing”!
Delivering gentle, research-supported spinal manipulation in
the form of gentle, well-investigated Cox® Technic is our choice.
Come experience it!

with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management mixed with a presentation of the
past influences on the present delivery and path for the future
direction of research and delivery of SMT.
Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE
MANAGE OSTEOPOROSIS: Risk, Falls, Care
Osteoporosis-related falls are widespread
as osteoporosis is one of the most common skeletal diseases. A review of two studies of older men and women with osteoporosis counted
their falls. Overall, falls within 4 months were documented to be signs
of higher risk for non-spine and hip fracture in the next 12 months.
For women, a recent fall signaled an 8.1%
absolute risk of non-spine fracture in 12 months, a 2.5 times higher
risk than women who hadn’t had falls, a 2.5%
absolute risk of hip fracture, and a 3.1 times higher fall risk.
(4) Falls aren’t good. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here to
help you avert falls and osteoporosis-related fractures. We
can talk about addressing options like nutrition (calcium and vitamin
D supplementation, etc.), gut microbiota balance, and exercise within the Montreal
chiropractic treatment plan for osteoporosis management.
(5,6) Researchers remarked that patients understood the benefit
of non-pharmacological management of osteoporosis including exercise,
nutrition, and fall prevention but confessed that they found it difficult integrating these
approaches into daily life. (6) Is that you? We’re here to help! Let’s discuss osteoporosis and fall
