September 2021 Healthy News from Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic

Access to and research behind Montreal chiropractic’s delivery of spinal manipulation is key for back and neck pain patients’ pain relief and expenses.

 
CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH AND ACCESS ARE IMPORTANT FOR SPINE PATIENT CARE

The “knowers” will control spinal manipulation once said Scott Haldeman DC MD. So true! And patients should expect their spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) providers to be such “knowers”! 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors. (1) Chiropractors know SMT. Your [[targeltocation]] chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows spinal manipulation.  A review of chiropractors’ use of SMT according to the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method discovered that chiorpractors appropriately used SMT in treating 84% of their chronic low back pain and 86% of their chronic neck pain patients. (2) According to an assessment of published research, research support for chiropractic SMT was cited more than average in a large number of research fields from medicine, veterinary, neurosciences, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, to social sciences. (3) Chiropractors know they can offer relieving SMT, affordably too, when patients have access to them. A recent study of older adult spine pain patients’ diminished access to chiropractic caused a rise the number of visits to primary care physicians for spine pain, quantity of spinal surgery, and cost of care (an extra cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries on medical services). (4) Fortunately in our area, your chiropractor is available to you, has the knowledge of the proper tests to evaluate your condition to set up a treatment plan to manage your spine pain. Many tests like manual palpation are available to back pain specialists like your Montreal chiropractor to assess low back pain in Montreal adults. For instance, the gluteal muscle palpation test for tenderness is quite reliable in its validity in differentiating low back pain patients with and without radiculopathy. (5) Chiropractors like yours at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic really are “knowers” who understand the examination, diagnosis, and appropriate treatment of Montreal back pain and neck pain!

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic shares how important slow deep breathing is in pain relief. 

Montreal CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Just Breathe

Just breathe. Do you think about breathing? Not many people do, but researchers are studying breathing more in its various modes and for its pain-relieving abilities. Compared to uncontrolled breathing patterns, slow deep breathing reduced visceral pain intensity. (6) It was found to better reduce pain when it was slow paced with a longer expiration than inspiration. (7) One study proposed pursed-lips breathing and found that it was more calming, pleasant, and sense-of-control delivering, especially good for managing emotional responses. (8) Fascinating! Your chiropractor most appreciated the study of breathing’s effect on chronic neck pain patients’ muscle activity which prompted researchers to advocate breathing as a part of neck pain treatment plans. (9) So breathe. You have to anyway, so maybe just pay a tad bit more attention to HOW you breathe to enhance your pain relief.
