Best to See Your Largo Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Hollstrom & Associates Inc gets when Largo folks talk about chiropractic. Largo chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some Largo chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Largo chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though following closely the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Largo chiropractic patients find that coming for a Largo chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is attained benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Hollstrom & Associates Inc appreciates every Largo chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Largo chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Largo chiropractic patient can gain from Largo chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc presents a recent study in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most promising results for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence lets Hollstrom & Associates Inc to really aid our Largo back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Largo chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One is more challenging  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a Largo chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is at your service!
