BACK PAIN RELIEF RECOMMENDATIONS
Suggestions and recommendations run the gamut.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows. Everyone from
friends, family members, researchers, doctors, others, have thoughts
and stories. In light of the inconsistency of back
pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization
of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and
opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers
optimally. (1) We agree. We review
the research and mingle it with our
experience when developing an individualized treatment
plan for our back pain patients. With the predicted growth of low
back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally
to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug,
non-surgical options for back pain are welcome, especially
ones that are tried and documented
as beneficial. A a newly published paper regarding
the care for one type of back pain - continued back pain after
back surgery also called failed back surgery syndrome
(FBSS) - that often results in continued or increased opioid
pain medication use. The study found
that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression
Manipulation experienced reduction or discontinuation of opioid use in the course
of an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an
encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to incorporate
into the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!
So what can our Largo chiropractic patients do
to limit their back pain and its effect on their lives?
Sleep. Keep active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain
sufferers listed that additional sleep, less sedentariness,
and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was
beneficial. The authors shared an example of how swapping 30
minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep decreased
low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important!
(4) So too is a visit to the Largo chiropractor for spinal
manipulation as it is listed in the recommendations
by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having
good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain together with
exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc is experienced in delivering
gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, creating
an easy exercise plan, and recommending
therapy and/or more advance rehab as necessary or wanted.
