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.
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.
