Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Delivers Relieving Spine Care often in Less Time, with Less Cost

How well do you understand your spine and what it requires? Does your physician? Does your insurance provider (ie, Medicare)? Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic prides itself on understanding the spine of each of our Montreal chiropractic patients. Your Montreal chiropractor assesses your low back when there’s low back pain, your neck when you have neck pain, your neck when you have arm pain, your low back when there’s leg pain, your thoracic spine when you have thoracic (and even neck and low back) pain. Your chiropractor ”gets” your spine. Sadly, sometimes your insurer doesn’t. The chiropractic profession endeavors to deliver the research to the insurers to cover essential treatment for your spine while your Montreal chiropractor strives to communicate clearly with your insurer for your best care and with you for your optimal clinical outcome: relief of pain.


Administrators’ data doesn’t tell the entire story about back pain. In a study that compared self-reported low back pain to data assembled by health administrations that track low back pain via billing codes and such found that these two groups do not agree. Self-reported data about low back pain (21.2%) was greater than administration’s data (10.2%). Characteristics of low back pain patients based on data differed in several areas – sex, health/behavior traits, and health care use – leading to an undervalued prevalence of low back pain. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows how prevalent back pain is and how it affects our back pain patients like you.


In a study that specifically examined one influence on back pain - spinal stiffness - from the subjective patient point of view and the objective testing angle found that these two measures don’t correlate well either. At least in this comparison, real input was from people: patients who filled out questionnaires and doctors doing objective tests. These findings directed the researchers to observe that while these two sources don’t correlate well, each is important in the whole general picture of the patient’s condition and care. (2) Your Montreal chiropractor factors in this evidence to take care of your spine.


Your Montreal chiropractor is an evidence-based chiropractor. Evidence guides the spine relief treatment plan at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. A fascinating study of chiropractic students revealed how with each year of learning they became less vitalistic and more evidence-based. (3) After 7 or so years in school, your chiropractor is ready to take care of Montreal back pain and neck pain patients. The evidence of useful chiropractic spine care keeps expanding! Researchers report today that the use of non-pharmacological pain management may prevent unnecessary use of opioids. Chiropractic is one type of non-drug pain management offering. In a study of 101,221 spine pain patients, 1.55 to 2.03 times more non-chiropractic patients filled an opioid prescription than chiropractic patients. (4) Further, Medicare beneficiary patients who use chiropractic are found to have higher clinical outcomes (faster recovery, fewer back surgeries 12 months later, less opioid-linked disability, fewer traumatic falls and injuries, slower declines in activities of daily living and disability over time) at less cost (fewer medical doctors visits for low back pain, less opioid expense, less back-surgery cost) with higher levels of satisfaction. (5) These are not bad trade-offs for the Medicare cost system and for the Medicare patient.
