Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLCs October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



La Grande knee pain is a pain that Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees a lot. Pain meds and surgical approaches are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is supplying good results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic all the time for La Grande back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for application with knee pain. They proved successful in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients reported any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Check out a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain.

La Grande CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and La Grande older folks benefit even more. A recent article states that chronic low back pain sufferers usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC concurs as this pairing is seen often in this La Grande chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function in a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC will give you some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do in the convenience of your own home along with the La Grande chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
