Montreal Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Montreal folks? Let us look at where it is in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Is that news to you? Likely because it takes many years for such new, proven ideas to filter to general knowledge. Some people (not our Montreal chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic certainly is the Montreal back pain specialist!

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Montreal chiropractic practice, particularly the painful cases! For example, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and escape the need for reoperation. (3) Reports say that from 9 to 33% of people receive spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do get spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a Montreal neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study reported that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. To top it off, a high rate of adverse effects is reported in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were described for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a worthy idea. A study of 137 patients recommended to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not require surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to need surgery, the type of surgery was changed in 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has considerable success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which integrates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves allowing normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A report of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were quite a bit younger and tended to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Such healthcare consumers were significantly more liable to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
