Largo Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Largo back pain and neck pain sufferers is reported to do the same. Access needs to be just as simple as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation relieve pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Hollstrom & Associates Inc presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Hollstrom & Associates Inc with good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on decreasing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit faster in delivering relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Hollstrom & Associates Inc for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Hollstrom & Associates Inc also understands that our Largo chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients reported making their appointments. That’s the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) made sense, but only 44% of them actually did the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we’ll keep doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic influenced medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and suffering. Hollstrom & Associates Inc makes itself accessible to our Largo spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients go on to escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is performed by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to experience escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers spinal manipulation. Your Largo chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are very good at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies were found to have spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Largo furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
