Hollstrom & Associates Inc Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A conventional question for your Largo chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc follows an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research confirms the system and its goals in which Largo chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Largo chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t produce beneficial results. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was very below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for neck and back pain treatment. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is growing as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to obtain relief. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in three months. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Hollstrom & Associates Inc: educate our Largo back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations took a bit longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Largo chronic back and neck pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Hollstrom & Associates Inc has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have pursued care from so many different providers that they “get” it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief drops the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that provides patients realistic expectations.
