"Why do I need on-going chiropractic
treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Largo chiropractor,
just treat it and put a stop to the pain altogether so it doesn't come back?"
This is not an atypical
question, and it's also really
logical. The answer is fairly
simple, too, though two-fold: we are born with spine-pain
issues or we acquire them.
BORN-WITH-IT BACK PAIN
Some of us are born with spinal issues that will
be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesis, transitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are distinctive to one's
own spine. There is no path to "get a new back bone"
if one of these conditions is our own. So we must figure
out how to use our spines so as to not trigger
pain. Your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc can deliver
the spinal manipulation designed to relieve
your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to think
- proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit,
stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to put
your now-pain-relieved spine in jeopardy again.
- nutritional needs - Hollstrom & Associates Inc will suggest
some nutrition ideas to improve
certain weaknesses of the spine.
- strengthening prerequisites - Our simple exercises do not take long but will
take you and your spine far in keeping it strong!
It is in these continued spine problems that
we - you and your Largo chiropractor - must
work together for the greatest
outcome, even coming in for periodic spinal manipulation. (1)
LIFE-ACQUIRED BACK PAIN
Some of us hurt our backs. We do
things that hurt the best
of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or
lifting excess weight. You get the idea - things
we do in everyday activities of daily living may injure
us, and we wind up with back pain. So, when we hurt the spine to the
extent that we cause intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated disc, arthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now will contend
with a spinal weakness which may become the weak link
in our spinal health.
We all must maintain a strong,
well-aligned spine and utilize the spine with the respect and knowledge of
staying away from those situations
that could cause it pain.
How? You and your Largo chiropractor see
each other every so often.
A recurring visit to Hollstrom & Associates Inc for spinal alignment
and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is good. Post-continued
spinal manipulation after the original
pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to obtain
long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than
having to go through repetitive treatment of Largo
back pain. It avoids pain and suffering in the
present and decreases the risk of further spine
pain in the future.
PATIENT-CENTERED BACK PAIN CARE: CHIROPRACTIC
A recent report reflected on the
reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability around
the world. It is persistent or recurrent for many people. It is
not common that it just goes away and never returns. Fortunately, chiropractic maintenance care or
management treatment plan has been found to be
effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some
sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be
of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while
cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried
others. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc strives to address all of these concerns which
often go away as the back pain diminishes.
Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is no
fun. Remedy is possible with
Hollstrom & Associates Inc. Just understand that there is a logical need
and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine problems.
