Largo Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Older back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Not likely! Your Largo chiropractor takes care of your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your Largo chiropractor and you the Largo back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is your local Largo chiropractic care center where Largo back pain patients meet their Largo chiropractor to form a pain relieving treatment plan as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A recent high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Hollstrom & Associates Inc appreciates this confirmation! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesreview and update. In the end, they approved current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They reinforced the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel added two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should advise exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc agrees! Largo chiropractic patients frequently look for care that will decrease their back pain. Then, they find Largo chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier way of life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Hollstrom & Associates Inc applies is called Cox Technic. In research studies concerning this approach, it is published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows exercise is important to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc urges all our Largo chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.

Schedule your Largo chiropractic appointment with Hollstrom & Associates Inc to talk about Largo back pain relief and prevention in older adults with Largo chiropractic care and appropriate Largo exercise. Your Largo chiropractor and you will work together as well as recommended spinal manipulation and exercise do to safely and effectively reduce low back pain.
