How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?

"Why do I need on-going chiropractic treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Montreal chiropractor, just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"

This is not a bizarre question, and it's also really sensible. The answer is fairly simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spinal issues or we develop them.

BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN

Some of us are born with spinal weaknesses that will be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesistransitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's own spine. There is no path to "get a new back bone" if one of these conditions is our own. So we must figure out how to use our spines so as to not trigger pain. Your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can perform the spinal manipulation intended to alleviate your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to consider its 

  • proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit, stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You do not want to put your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
  • nutritional needs - Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic will share some nutrition ideas to strengthen certain weaknesses of the spine.
  • strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises don't take long but will take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!

It is in these continued spine problems that we - you and your Montreal chiropractor - must collaborate for the best outcome, even coming in for occasional spinal manipulation. (1)

LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN

Some of us injure our backs. We do things that harm the seemingly healthiest of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or lifting too much weight. You get the idea - things we do in our normal activities of daily living may hurt us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the level that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated discarthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the vulnerable link in our spinal health.

We all must nurture a strong, well-aligned spine and use the spine with the respect and knowledge of avoiding those activities that could cause it pain.

How? You and your Montreal chiropractor see each other every now and then. A recurring visit to Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic for spinal alignment and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Continued spinal manipulation after the initial pain-relieving care is even described as a way to maintain long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than having to go through repetitive treatment of Montreal back pain. It averts pain and suffering in the present and decreases the chance of further spine pain in the future.

PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC

A recent report described the reality of low back pain being a major reason for disability globally. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is not known to just go away and never return. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or management treatment plan has been documented as effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was reported to be of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried others. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic strives to address all of these concerns which often go away as the back pain diminishes.

Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is not fun. Remedy is possible with Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. Just understand that there is a logical necessity and even benefit for occasional spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions. (1)
