May 2019 Healthy News: Montreal Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

Instead of opioids, Montreal chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Montreal chronic pain is rampant. Montreal opioid use is widespread. What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs soared, risks soared. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less likely to get a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with their chronic low-back and neck pain told researchers that their pain would be higher without such chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Montreal chiropractic patients at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic appreciate their chiropractic care! Montreal chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to or without opioids.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Vincent Pankonin on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how chronic back pain treatment without opioids utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was gone!

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Montreal athletes – recreational and professional – want that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation may be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced improved muscle strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after just one spinal manipulation. The improved force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt better performances in 2 football seasons during which they received spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A recent report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in charge of controlling the body's unconscious actions) dominance and marginally diminished performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let’s chat at your next Montreal chiropractic appointment.
