Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Shares Tips on How to Reduce Negative Effects of Back Pain on Your Life

Quality of life. That is the central factor in aging well and enjoying life to its fullest. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is honored to work with Montreal chiropractic patients to enhance their chances of aging well and experiencing the best quality of life possible. Montreal back pain patients understand that knowing what factors might negatively impact their quality of life and their options to reduce the influence of those factors.

FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain negatively impact quality of life. These conditions often arise in mid-life and older life, making life not very enjoyable. Researchers reported on factors that seem to decrease the odds of getting these problems. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Good spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No issue with locomotion syndrome – difficulty switching positions. Good body balance. With such good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are notoriously important factors in motor control functions like balance, attempts to strengthen these particularly are important to try to turn around such problems as balance control. (2) Exercise is manytimes a part of the chiropractic treatment plan for Montreal back pain patients. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows that back pain sufferers have many healthcare forms of care from which to pick and shares what the researchers say about such options.

SURGICAL OUTCOMES

To benefit most out of an option, the circumstances must be optimal.  Back surgery may not always be the choice option for every Montreal back pain patient. Undergoing back surgery does not always result in the desired outcome, particularly for patients with back pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. The pain and disability that accompany it stayed around for 29% to 42% of patients who reportedly experienced minimal to no benefit from back surgery. (3) Today’s guidelines of care for back pain recommend non-surgical options like spinal manipulation as the first step. Chiropractic care incorporates spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is all about Cox® Technic flexion distraction decompression spinal manipulation to get the desired pain reduction outcome.

Montreal CHIROPRACTIC CARE OUTCOMES

Chiropractic researchers are currently studying the specific effects of chiropractic care’s spinal manipulation on balance, strength and endurance better outcomes in patients with low back pain, especially active military personnel as 20% of all disability discharges were associated with back pain. (4) Low back pain is a familiar reason for disability in the military. Seeing as how military personnel are people like us all, this study’s findings will be interesting! Another study that added chiropractic - spinal manipulative therapy to the low back and adjacent regions along with other therapeutic procedures such as rehabilitative exercise, cryotherapy, superficial heat, and other manual therapies - to usual medical care - self-care, medications, physical therapy, and pain clinic referral – enhanced short-term outcomes in low back pain intensity and disability in active duty military. (5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic collects these positive studies to share with our Montreal back pain patients.
