Getting Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Largo chiropractic patients realize that visiting their chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc is beneficial. Their back pain and neck pain reduces. Largo chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Hollstrom & Associates Inc. A benefit Largo chiropractic patients may not necessarily appreciate because they are chiropractic patients presently is that seeing a chiropractor reduces the odds of back surgery. A recent report stated that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider consulted for the back pain injury. 42.7% of workers who consulted a surgeon|first went to a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Plus, the chiropractic adjustment works wonders on the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is noted particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is described in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Largo back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is pleasing!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was thinking about back surgery when she came to see him for her back pain and found relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.
