Largo Chiropractor Embraces the role of Back Pain Specialist

When I check into a hotel for a conference, the conversation often goes like this:

Front desk staff: “So what are you here for?”

Me: “I’m a chiropractor from Largo attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My neck is really hurting.”

Your Largo chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain forever! Largo chiropractic patients at Hollstrom & Associates Inc know this for sure. Your Largo chiropractor accepts the reputation as the Largo back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and isn’t reticent in the least about letting everyone know in Largo.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You’ve heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup partnered with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that showed that 78% of American adults would prefer to use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to deal with pain like low back or neck pain. Those same adults considered physical therapy and chiropractic care as quite effective and safe when compared to pain medications. Aaron Carroll MD writes for the New York Times, and in a blog post called “For Bad Backs, It’s Time to Rethink Biases about Chiropractors,” he emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are reasonable options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers concluded that chiropractic is viewed by society as a profession of health care providers who are specialists in spine care as their education, scope of practice, and educational accrediting and testing involve spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults expressed that chiropractic care was successful in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% thought chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc gets this. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows that Largo back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Largo chiropractic care and then count on Hollstrom & Associates Inc to guide them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and enhance their health and spine to prevent future adverse health and/or spinal pain conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially trained to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners play many responsibilities: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), give evidence-based care like spinal manipulation, manual therapy, rehab/exercise, education about the condition, counseling to help the back pain sufferer accept the condition and its outcome expectations as well as commit to its treatment plan, and coordinate all aspects of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with lots of responsibility! It’s just the job your Largo chiropractor embraces! What do Largo back pain sufferers wants? Consumers desire access to non-drug therapies supplied by spine care experts like chiropractors first. It benefits in several ways. One is improving the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping deal with the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is reducing the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly reining in the opioid epidemic. The American College of Physicians’ recommendations for back pain sufferers specifically say that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here to do its part to help.
