SPINAL MANIPULATION: A Beneficial Choice for Relief of Back Pain, Better Quality of
Life, Reduced Risk of Tests and Prescriptions
Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) is a choice when it
comes to options for managing back pain, a choice
not all back pain patients know about but may
want to be. In an analysis of 83,025 insurance back pain claims,
28% of the patients underwent treatment with
SMT. Of them, 24% underwent SMT initially, 4% delayed using SMT,
and 72% did not received SMT at all. Caring
for initial back pain episodes
with spinal manipulation reduced the risk of imaging studies,
injection procedures, and/or back surgery by nearly 30%
compared with no SMT.
Delayed SMT also raised the risk for these procedures. (1) A review of older
Medicare chronic low back pain sufferers who received long-term
care with SMT found that they had
higher health-related quality of life and satisfaction with care than those who
had long-term care with prescription drug therapy.
(2) Older Medicare chronic low back pain patients who initially chose opioid
analgesic therapy experienced a higher rate of adverse drug
events than the patients who chose SMT care. (3) Spinal manipulation is our forte!
Delivering gentle, research-supported spinal manipulation in
the form of gentle, well-researched Cox® Technic is our choice.

past influences on the present delivery and plan for the future

Largo CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE
MANAGE OSTEOPOROSIS: Risk, Falls, Care
Osteoporosis-related falls are widespread
as osteoporosis is one of the most common skeletal diseases. An
analysis of two studies of older men and women with osteoporosis tracked
their falls. Overall, falls within 4 months were documented to be indicators
of higher risk for non-spine and hip fracture in the next year.
In women, a recent fall indicated an 8.1%
absolute risk of non-spine fracture in 12 months, a 2.5 times higher
risk than women who had not had falls, a 2.5%
absolute risk of hip fracture, and a 3.1 times increased fall risk.
(4) Falls aren’t good. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here to
help you prevent falls and osteoporosis-related fractures. We
can talk about addressing options like nutrition (calcium and vitamin
D supplementation, etc.), gut microbiota balance, and exercise within the Largo
chiropractic treatment plan for managing osteoporosis.
(5,6) Researchers observed that patients understood the benefit
of non-pharmacological management of osteoporosis including exercise,
nutrition, and fall prevention but confessed that they had a
hard time integrating these
approaches into daily life. (6) Is that you? Hollstrom & Associates Inc
