You experience a bout of back pain – first,
second, tenth. Are you curious about what that means going
forward? Of course! The trajectory – researchers’ term
for the path of back pain – of the Largo back pain
experience is individual to each, but there are issues
that may help foretell that course. Hollstrom & Associates Inc shares
a few ideas on the influence of lifestyle and
WHAT TO DO – Chiropractic
A new article’s findings make seeking chiropractic care
logical to contain the course of back pain. Patients
who undergo chiropractic care for their chronic (more
than 3 months) and acute (under a month) low back pain who
reported “much better” or “better” at one week of care were 4 to 5 times more
likely to report improvement at 30 days and 90 days of care.
More specifically, acute back pain patients who reported having
more severe pain and disability in the beginning of care
recovered more quickly. Most
patients with lumbar radicular leg pain improved. Both acute
and chronic back pain patients reported good outcomes. (1)
Another study of the interdisciplinary care (spine
surgeons/chiropractors in a university hospital) of chronic back pain patients documented
that almost half of the chronic low back pain patients treated with
chiropractic conservative care reported clinically relevant improvement. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc
sees even greater outcomes with our specific form
of chiropractic care, Cox® Technic!
WHAT TO DO – More Chiropractic
So why stop chiropractic
care with pain relief? A study demonstrated that
low back pain patients who experienced chiropractic maintenance
care – chiropractic treatments on a regular basis regardless of their symptoms – experienced fewer
days of low back pain that limited their activities of daily living compared
with getting treatment only when a new low back pain episode arose. (3) More Largo
chiropractic care on a regular basis looks beneficial.
WHAT TO DO – More Activity
More is not always better, but some kinds of
more are better, like chiropractic and activity. A low back pain patient
with a lifetime history of back pain may want to try participating
in higher volumes of moderate to vigorous physical activity since it
was found to reduce the odds of extending
severe low back pain over the next year. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows
none of us back pain sufferers wants to hear that,
but it’s the finding of one study. More intense exercise
was shown beneficial. Understand too that a sedentary lifestyle –
work and/or pleasure time – moderately raises the risk
of low back pain. (5) There is a middle ground! Let’s at
Hollstrom & Associates Inc uncover that with you, the spot that inhibits
back pain and allows you to be as active as you want to be.
