Healthy News from Your La Grande Chiropractor February 2018

La Grande chiropractic at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC includes examination, diagnosis, treatment, and listening! 


La Grande back pain patients are central to our La Grande chiropractic practice. Our La Grande chiropractic patients’ thoughts and expectations play a role in the care you obtain and the clinical outcome from that La Grande chiropractic care you get. Research reports that users of mind/body practices (like acupuncture, chiropractic, meditation, massage, yoga in this paper) consider that these practices treat, prevent and are more effective than other choices like prescriptions. (1) It is valuable for all caregivers to understand what their patients are thinking, believe and want. Be sure to communicate that to us! What does a La Grande low back pain patient expect from a physician? 90% expected an exam, tests, diagnosis, reassurance, advice, clear reason for their pain, symptom management, and the benefits/risks of treatment. About 50% hoped to be sent to a specialist.  About 60% wanted to share life problems. (2) Does that sound like what you are looking for? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is open to lending an ear to you, talking, examining, diagnosing and treating you for relief of your La Grande back pain.

Listen to this PODCAST  from the Back Doctors' Podcast series of a patient who expected relief without a back surgery and got it with Cox® Technic.

La Grande chiropractic treatment plan at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC may well include chondroitin sulfate! 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin sulfate’s reputation for helping prevent and even potentially regenerate disc cartilage increases. Its anti-inflammatory reputation and effect on osteoarthritis do as well. (Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC appreciates seeing the literature reveal this as Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC has recommended chondroitin sulfate to our La Grande chiropractic patients for years!) It is being proposed as a slow-acting agent in the care of low back pain linked to osteoarthritis. (3) It deters the actions of inflammatory agents linked to conditions like osteoporosis and heart disease. (4, 5) Chondroitin sulfate use in the management of low back pain grows. Let’s talk about its role in your own La Grande chiropractic treatment plan for La Grande back pain relief.
