"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 spondylolisthesis, transitional 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 disc, arthritis, 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.
