Hollstrom & Associates Inc’s Healthy News for March 2017

No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

In a new report, authors share treatment outcomes of patients with implanted spinal stimulators for post-surgical continued back pain management. Patients with these devices have “failed back surgery syndrome” with continued back pain post surgically. After being treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation or mobilization, patients with these stimulators reported no adverse side effects. (1) The first rule of being a physician is “Do no harm”. This study shows how spinal manipulation and mobilization do just that. Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers Largo chiropractic care that does not harm. Schedule a visit today!

Chronic Neck Pain Patients Walk More Stiffly

Patients with chronic neck pain have a shorter stride and less thoracic spinal rotation when walking. Walking like this will affect the spine well into the future. (2) What to do? Hollstrom & Associates Inc’s recommendation: Don’t let neck pain turn chronic. Seek Largo chiropractic care relief sooner than later, and walk less stiffly.

Post-Back Surgery or Not, Exercise 150 minutes a Week!

National guidelines recommend that we all get 150 minutes of exercise weekly. Only 52% of us Largo non-back pain folks do this! Sadly, even fewer - just 26% - post-back surgery patients do this. It’s shown that 150 minutes prevents more back surgery and helps post-surgical back pain patients going. They also experience less back pain after surgery. (3) Physical exercise is so effective. Our Largo chiropractic practice encourages a simple walk a day to all Largo chiropractic patients.

Pain Medications for Back and Leg Pain – Not Effective Over Placebo

A meta-analysis, the highest form of research reporting, reports that NSAIDSdespite their being. one of the most frequently prescribed drugs for sciatic leg pain offer similar pain relief and overall improvement to placebo with a higher risk of adverse side-effects. (4) Another study shares that NSAIDS are effective for spinal pain but the difference between NSAID relief and placebo relief is not clinically relevant. It further says that there are no simple analgesics that give clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here to help with Largo chiropractic non-drug pain-relieving care! Contact Hollstrom & Associates Inc today for an appointment.

March may be the month of luck and green-leafed clovers, but luck may also be defined as being prepared for the opportunity/issue/problem before us.
