Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers some tips to limit the risk of the fall risk and help]16] Largo chiropractic patients grow stronger and stay on their feet!


Chronic low back pain sufferers experience more concern when performing “sit to stand” and “stand to sit” processes. These are just what they sound like! Healthy people can move from sitting to standing and standing to sitting at a realistic speed. Chronic back pain sufferers are slower, likely due to the slower muscle activation needed to perform these movements. (1) Chronic low back pain patients with lumbar spine instability are noted to have more postural sway when their eyes are closed or their vision is somehow concealed. (2) Pain influences balance and increases fall risk. Neck pain is significantly associated with postural balance. Intense low back pain is associated with a significantly higher concern of falling. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps with both pain and balance in Largo chiropractic patients.


Of note, the top two reasons over-age-65-years patients look for care from a chiropractor like your Largo chiropractor are back pain and neck pain. Other reasons are balance, groin pain, hip pain, and headaches.
