La Grande Chiropractic Care Works for Those Who Have Access and Use It

Access and concordance. Agreement with the plan and access to the plan. These are the ingredients to optimal outcomes with chiropractic care. In La Grande, access to chiropractic is easy. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC invites back pain and neck pain sufferers to describe their pain symptoms openly to foster a pain relieving treatment plan which they will follow.


Chiropractic services for neck and back pain have been proven efficacious via many randomized controlled trials. Chiropractic services are accepted as effective for neck pain and back pain relief. A recent study describes the satisfaction of patients who either follow the suggested treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients were said to be “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits during the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time frame or 12 visits in a year) and their characteristics were documented. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were considered “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare bills for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients. Physical function issues influenced the discordant patients’ outcomes. (1) Do not let physical function make you discordant or hold you back from making your visits! Make your visits.
