Montreal Back Pain Patients Expect Results from Chiropractic Care

“I don’t want this pain to worsen.”

“I want some pain relief.”

“I want pain relief.”

“I want this back pain to go away and never return.”

Back pain and neck pain patients tend to have assorted goals for their pain. Healthcare policy often relates to cure. Many chronic pain patients know otherwise. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows otherwise. We all want relief and some trace of control over how and when back pain and neck pain develop and ease. Chiropractic care is for these patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic’s chiropractic care looks at a problem like back and neck pain and acknowledges that often there is no “cure,” but there is “control.” Back pain and neck pain patients who have experienced a few episodes with either condition realize this, too. They align their healthcare goals with their experience: there isn’t always a cure, but there is often control to avert pain episodes and relieving care to get through the pain episodes as quickly as possible. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is the Montreal chiropractic place for back and neck pain patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is home of the Montreal back pain specialist.

PATIENT EXPECTATIONS: HOW THEY INFLUENCE AND HOW THEY’RE MET

Chiropractic back pain specialists know their back pain and neck pain sufferers well. A recent study of 1614 patients experiencing chronic low back pain (885) and chronic neck pain (729) reported their goals for chiropractic care of their issues. About a third of them wished for the pain to go away permanently and tended to have experienced pain for a briefer period of time and hold a stronger belief in medical cure; they sought a cure. 22% of low back pain and 16% of neck pain patients sought to prevent their pain from returning and tended to have lower pain levels. 14% of low back and 12% of neck pain patients wanted to stop their pain from getting worse. 31% of back pain and 41% of neck pain patients wanted temporary relief of their pain. These last two sets of patients were more likely to have experienced pain for a longer period of time. Which group do you fall into? Like most humans, there is a discrepancy from person to person contingent on their experience that chiropractors and other healthcare providers need to recognize. (1) Such patient expectations are documented to predict short-term outcomes of chiropractic care for low back pain. Another study detailed that patients with a high expectation of improvement were 58% more apt to report an improvement at the fourth visit. (2) Certainly, having healthcare providers of various professions working as a team can boost low back pain patients’ chances of relief. (3) Today, the patient is the focus for healthcare providers. Patient-centered care depends on patient-reported outcomes to tell the story. The patient’s perspective must always be considered. And as for non-pharmacological treatment of low back pain, active patient involvement is essential. (4) At Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic the Montreal back pain patient is at the center of all we do.
