Touch is Part of Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinics Relieving Back Pain Care

For all the discussion of artificial intelligence and the future of robots and computers in our lives, the positive effect of human touch can’t be supplanted. Chiropractic is a hands-on profession. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers hands-on Montreal chiropractic care. Chiropractic has a long history of valuable manual manipulation and treatment for back pain, neck pain and related extremity pain. Touch cannot be dismissed in its impact on healing and is not ignored by your Montreal chiropractor as your pain-relieving treatment plan is set beginning with day one’s exam and throughout the whole treatment process.


Touch in the relationship between doctor and patient is fundamental. A recent report documents that touch can initiate neuromodulatory effects to ease pain and reduce}decrease patient anxiety about the pain. Researchers reported that the effect of touch begins with the confident handshake and continues through the physical examination, especially when the physician doing the exam touches the spot the patient says is painful. This confirms to the patient that the doctor gets the patient’s pain. Touch also influences treatment for manual and manipulative treating physicians. (1) The effect of touch can’t be refuted. Your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic recognizes that this is true and sees its effect daily and is happy to see its importance discussed in the medical literature for manual therapy’s beneficial role in the health care system for conditions like Montreal back pain, neck pain, arm pain, and sciatic leg pain.


A researcher remarked on an influential study’s outcomes regarding the effect of spinal manipulation and exercise for back pain relief: “the data are compatible with a non-specific effect caused by touch.” (2) Human touch has an effect that science tries to quantify. Until then, chiropractic physicians like your Montreal chiropractor will embrace the effect of touch as they deliver spinal manipulation with their hands.


Chiropractors rely on their sense of touch in delivering the appropriate forces to the spine, forces that deliver pain relief for the back pain and neck pain patient. Experience really refines the appropriate force application. Today, though, technology may be helpful in this area as force-feedback systems are helping doctors gain that key experience. With the chiropractic technique system utilized at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, research has documented just what those proper, pain-relieving forces are. (3,4) Force-measuring equipment has been developed and incorporated into teaching and daily-use chiropractic tables. (As an extra, in doing the research study to assess forces with patients, no serious adverse effects were documented. “First, do no harm.”)  (5,6) The Cox® Technic flexion distraction procedures used at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic are documented, gentle, and efficient for relieving pain and decreasing intradiscal pressures (7,8). That is a chiropractic treatment outcome combination our Montreal chiropractic patients seek.
