“Chronic” – not a term that sounds very happy or good, is it? Chronic low back pain is long-lasting
back pain that goes
on for more than 3 months that just won’t quit.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic invites frustrated, hurting chronic
low back pain patients of all ages. Our gentle Montreal
chiropractic service is often relieving, bringing
hope for a better day ahead.
GROWING SUPPORT FOR CHRONIC LBP RELIEF WITH COX® TECHNIC
Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners
like your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic witness
the pain relief and function improvement.
Some publish their outcomes for everyone to see! A newly
published case report of a 67 year old male veteran coping with
chronic low back pain and pain extending down his
right leg occasionally recorded relief with Cox®
Technic treatment. The patient described experiencing this pain for decades. In 4 weeks and 4 visits
of flexion distraction treatment together
with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he detailed
improvement in his condition, less pain medication usage,
and better mobility. (1) That is a welcome result
for this back pain sufferer!
WHAT’S UP WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN? Spinal Manipulation’s Role
Chronic low back pain like that explained by
the veteran in this case report is very common and
can be quite disabling. Spinal manipulation is recommended
for the management of chronic low back in several
guidelines backed by such groups as the American Pain Society
and the American College of Pain Physicians. (2,3) With chronic low back pain, central
sensitization – the effect of repeated nerve
stimulation has on the central nervous system - is purported to contribute
to chronicity of pain. Spinal manipulation’s benefit
may well come from its influence on this sensitization.
(4) That is a benefit chronic back pain
sufferers can accept.
SPINAL MANIPULATION BETTER FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN…REGARDLESS
A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized
controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation care
for chronic low back pain described that spinal manipulation
produced similar effects to other suggested
therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was superior
to non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and
had limited, mild-to-moderate, fleeting adverse
effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis determined that spinal
manipulation appeared to be a good option for relief
of pain and improvement of function
for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis of specifically older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low
back pain sufferers, the same deductions were reported:
spinal manipulation should be considered a beneficial
treatment for the older patient with chronic
low back pain for pain relief and function improvement. (7) Most spinal manipulation is rendered
by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and
Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic studied extra in the delivery of the gentle,
non-thrust form of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which
well know for its treatment of disc herniation and spinal
stenosis pain in addition to more common spinal
