Best to See Your Montreal Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic gets when Montreal folks talk about chiropractic. Montreal chiropractic patients are a mixed lot. Some Montreal chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Montreal chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though following closely the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Montreal chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Montreal chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal basis after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic appreciates every Montreal chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Montreal chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Montreal chiropractic patient can benefit from Montreal chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic presents a new study in which chronic low back pain patients were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic to really aid our Montreal back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Montreal chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a Montreal chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is at your service!
