Largo KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Largo knee pain is a pain that Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees a lot. Pain medications and surgical options are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is revealing quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic daily for Largo back pain and neck pain relief - were tailored for use with knee pain. They proved successful in easing knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell 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. No one in the study reported any adverse side-effects. (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. This is an exciting addition to Hollstrom & Associates Inc’s Largo chiropractic care! Largo knee pain sufferers are invited to feel this gentle, relieving Largo knee pain treatment!

 

Largo CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Largo older folks benefit even more. A recent article states that chronic low back pain sufferers typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Hollstrom & Associates Inc agrees as this pairing is seen frequently in this Largo chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function for a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Hollstrom & Associates Inc will share some hip strengthening exercises you can do at home alongside the Largo chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
