Exercise is good and beneficial. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.
Exercise also allows the patient to take control of their pain relief. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows our Largo
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what
they used to do.
Weak back muscles don’t allow fluid spinal motion in low
back pain patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows this isn’t good for
our Largo back pain patients! What makes these muscles weak? Fat. With back pain comes
more fat infiltration into the back muscles, muscles like the lumbar multifidus
muscles which greatly influence the range of motion in lumbar spine. Fattier
multifidi, less lumbar flexion. (1)
Researchers find that there is big
payoff for doing a little exercise! Patients
who did just 2 days of muscle strengthening a week reduced the
risk for low back pain. (And this
article, as a side note, shares that smoking is also an influential factor in your risk of getting back pain. It is better not to smoke.) (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers
simple exercises you can do in just a few minutes
from the comfort of your own home if you like! You’ll notice
the difference these make!
Chronic nonspecific low back pain sufferers gain
from exercises like the lumbopelvic core stabilization exercises by positively affecting
the pain perception by improving your pain threshold and reducing
your pain intensity. (3) These exercises are not difficult, but they do
Hollstrom & Associates Inc will who you how to do them so you
can experience the most possible back pain relief.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc is with you, our Largo back pain patient, throughout
your whole course of healing with as much support as you
Back school is an additional such
support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for handling chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are recommended
over many other types of care. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
The chiropractic treatment plan is enriched when
back school is included in the overall back pain rehabilitation
plan. How? Back school fosters self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Hollstrom & Associates Inc strives to educate our back pain patients as
to how and why their backs hurt and how to avoid or at
least diminish the chances of future occurrences. One
study of just how well back school is received by back pain patients is a study
of those who went to a back school at a chiropractor’s office.
Back pain patients reported 95% satisfaction with going to the
class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
to present it. (6) Largo chiropractic
patients at Hollstrom & Associates Inc are some of the wisest and knowledgeable
spine-informed people around!
