Montreal chiropractic care helps control chronic back pain that causes pain beyond the back and into life that prevents sufferers from enjoying their lives. 

Back pain patients come to Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic with all sorts of different issues. Some walk better than others. Some have better muscles than others. Some are more prone to depression than others. Your Montreal chiropractor understands this and meets each back pain patient where s/he is and examines each patient to find the difference(s) that make all the difference when designing a relieving chiropractic treatment plan. Assessments like the 6-minute walk test that gauges the distance walked in 6 minutes and the TUG (‘time up to go’ from a seated position) test can be quite educational about cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health in degenerative lumbar spine patients. Both may be influenced by back pain. (1) Back muscles that turn weak and fatty (like the multifidus muscle tends to do) signify issues with inflammatory and regeneration processes. (Back surgeons do not like this as a inferior surgical outcome is likely.) (2) Chiropractors get this and encourage gentle exercise for these back muscles as a component of the treatment plan to avert recurrent back pain that a few low back disc degeneration sufferers endure. A recent study explained that those who tend to experience recurrent back pain were shown to move in a different way, more causiously, likely to evade pain. Recurrent back pain patients also experienced higher levels of anxiety, depression, and disability along with a reduced quality of life. (3) Your Montreal chiropractor embraces all back pain sufferers with all their peculiarities. Your chiropractor teams up with with each one during the current back pain event and beyond to control the back pain (emotional, physical and mental features), so it does not control them.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Nike Taylor on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson on how she eases pain in a chronic back pain patient in the middle of a recurrent episode of back pain via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to find relief and a feeling of control over back pain to lessen recurrent back pain episodes as much as possible.

Chronic Montreal back pain may be helped by olfactory training which uses smelling scents to desensitize the sufferer to the pain.

Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

SNIFFING SCENTS TO REDUCE PAIN!

An appealing study of chronic low back pain patients reported that odor-training helped decrease their pain thresholds. Regular exposure (every 2 hours in the research project) to scents like rose, vanilla, peach and chocolate – olfactory training! - helped ease pain. The researchers hinted that it may help ease pain chronification and quite possibly control general pain via desensitization. (4) What a pleasant addition this could be to the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management! You may want to try smelling some pleasurable scents yourself!
