Does any neck pain sufferer look forward to
getting an xray or MRI or injection or surgery? Not likely. New
studies are explaining how receiving spinal manipulation –
90% of which is delivered by chiropractors - may help such Montreal
neck pain patients avoid treatment escalation to
imaging/injections/surgery. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
is here to help with that!
EFFECTS OF SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain alongside Montreal back pain are primary
causes of disability globally and here in Montreal.
Chiropractic is being related as a safe, helpful
option for management of back and neck pain for quite a few such
patients. Chiropractic is described as care centered
on spine care and treatment of spine pain conditions via spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation is described as hindering
back and neck pain in part by spine related mechanisms and potentially
via peripheral mechanisms that control inflammatory pain responses.
More research is recommended to figure out
just what the specific and non-specific effects of spinal manipulation are. (1)
We utilize spinal manipulation daily at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic.
SPINAL MANIPULATION CONTAINS NECK PAIN TREATMENT ESCALATION
Spinal manipulation for neck pain is shown
to decrease the risk of treatment escalation. 42% of neck pain
patients wanting relief find that their treatment is heightened
to include care like imaging, injection, emergency room visit, or surgery. Such
risk was 2.38 times greater in those who got care
other than spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation reduced the
risk. Over 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors
in the US. (2) Your Montreal chiropractor uses
specialized, research-based, safe, and gentle spinal manipulation for neck pain
SPECIFIC FORM OF DOCUMENTED SPINAL MANIPULATION FOR NECK
As an example of how a specific form of spinal manipulation,
Cox® Technic flexion distraction, facilitates in relieving
pain, a patient case about a patient with neurofibromatosis
who had headaches, temporomandibular discomfort as well as
neck, scapular and lumbar pain, manually treated cervical spine flexion
distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release,
patient education about modifying her workplace
ergonomics, and at-home care decreased her neck and thoracic
spine pain and headache frequency. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic works
one-on-one with each neck pain sufferer to provide him/her the tools
and understanding to get such relief.
PATIENT SELF-CARE AND UNDERSTANDING
Showing chronic nonspecific Montreal
neck pain patients things they can do to help themselves and to understand
their neck pain enhances their outcomes. A study comparing
therapeutic exercise alone to therapeutic exercise plus pain neuroscience education
to assist their understanding of their condition
found that the combination helped more.
The combination decreased the patients’ pain-disability indices,
pain catastrophizing thoughts, and fear-avoidance beliefs. (4) That is
the goal of care for us at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic: reduced pain.
