March 2017 Healthy News for Montreal Chiropractic Patients

Chiropractic Care and Spinal Stimulators for Post-Surgical Pain Management – No Adverse Side Effects

In a new report, authors share treatment outcomes of patients who have implanted spinal stimulators for pain management after back surgery. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain after back surgery. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. Spinal manipulation and mobilization meet that rule in this study’s findings. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers Montreal chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less thoracic spinal rotation when walking. This will likely have long term effects on the spine. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic’s best advice: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Montreal chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines recommend that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. How many of us Montreal folks do? Just 52%! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It is shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. These post-surgical patients also experience less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so effective. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages a simple walk a day to all Montreal chiropractic patients.

Placebo and Pain Meds for Back and Leg Pain Similar

NSAIDs offer similar pain relief and overall improvement as placebo but with higher risk of adverse side-effects says a new meta-analysis, a high form of research reporting. And NSAIDs continue to be one of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) Another study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically significant. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here to help with Montreal chiropractic non-drug pain-relieving care! Contact Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic today for an appointment.
