Regular Largo chiropractic care. A good
idea? Yes! Consider other helpful regular care ideas: Endocrinologists
recommend that diabetics regularly monitor their blood sugars.
Dentists recommend regular teeth cleanings a couple times annually to keep plaque away. Cardiologists at the American Heart
Association recommend doing at least 150 minutes of
moderate-to-vigorous aerobic physical activity a week to make
an impact on heart health. Health experts recommend regular daily exercise for 30
minutes a day five days a week to keep the body in tune. Nutritionists
recommend proper food intake a day: fruits,
veggies, proteins, fats, etc., to nourish the body properly.
Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is recommended by the American College
of Physicians, American Pain Society, and the American Medical Association. (1,2)
Chiropractors recommend spinal manipulation treatments regularly, too, not
necessarily daily once the pain is under control, but regularly to prevent spine pain – back
pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc cares for
many Largo chiropractic patients on a regular basis, Largo
chiropractic patients who choose such care to keep their spines as healthy and pain-free as possible.
BACK PAIN STATS
80% of us humans will experience at
least one episode of back pain in our lifetime. A third of
us experiences back pain right now. Back pain comes and goes, not typically disappearing forever, depending on activities.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc often tells patients that the existing
episode of back pain is gaining your attention for a reason. If
for no other reason, it is begging for care. It won’t
be ignored. Your spine will welcome
an effective treatment plan to get rid of the pain as
well as a plan to keep it mobile and healthy.
CONTINUED CARE BENEFITS
That is where regular chiropractic care comes
into play. Certainly our Largo chiropractic patients understand
that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck
pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand
that they don’t want to suffer with that pain again!
While there is no guarantee that back pain or neck pain won’t come back, keeping that pain
at bay and/or keeping its return to as mild as possible is a worthwhile
goal as is a goal to be able to do daily activities as pain free
and worry free as possible. A recent study titled the Nordic
Maintenance Care Program reported that such chiropractic maintenance
care decreased the number of days of bothersome pain that restrained
activities and improved the number of pain free weeks
between episodes. These outcomes may well help patients and doctors realistically
temper their expectations
of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, doesn’t prevent
new episodes necessarily, but it’s a plan to decrease
life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers who have
recurrent and persistent low back pain. (3) For these Largo back
pain patients, Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here.

with Dr. Joel Dixon on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael
Johnson as he shares how 20 years of maintenance care benefited
his veteran patient control his back pain so that he could do what he wanted in his life.
