Largo Back Pain Care and Exercise Guidelines

Guidelines. There are guidelines everywhere! This post talks about some of the newer guidelines for interprofessional teamwork between chiropractors and other healthcare providers to boost the healing of Largo back pain and neck pain sufferers. Exercises are a primary part of back pain prevention as well as management that all providers support and all providers are concerned are not always carried out. Chiropractors like your own at Hollstrom & Associates Inc are health promoters and work to do that in the kindest, most supportive way! We can work together to get you better.


Everything in healthcare is about quality. Providers and patients desire the best quality care possible in delivering care and receiving care. Interprofessional collaboration rises to the top when researchers assess systems for the care of back pain like appropriate use of screening and preventive services. (1) Researchers have also put together 70 quality indicators for chiropractic delivery that are standardized and evidence-based that take into account patient concerns and higher clinical outcomes. (2) Physical activity surely is a component of a quality chiropractic healthcare plan for Largo pain relief.


In a recent survey, chiropractors reported that the biggest concern they had in managing back pain patients was patient follow through (coming to appointments, doing exercises, following at-home instructions, etc.). (3) In another survey, 90% of chiropractors reported that they were optimistic about healthier patient lifestyles. These chiropractors also reported that they were actively involved in promoting physical activity, suggesting exercises to patients for their particular issue, asking how the exercises are going, and advising patients in the proper way to do exercises as well as benefit that comes from exercising. (4) One way that patients seem to respond more positively and be more willing to do physical activity is using a mobile app. Such apps help oversee low back and neck pain patients when they are built around reported pain, pain intensity, and structure of the app like audio explanation and animation of each exercise. (5)  Doing the right exercises in the right way typically brings about the rightfully desired outcome.


Core stabilization exercises are commonly recommended to back pain patients. A new study that incorporated diaphragmatic breathing exercises noted many advantages for chronic low back pain patients: enhanced muscle activity, chest expansion, quality of sleep, enhanced disability and physical activity and pain scores, decreased fear avoidance, and higher physical activity, and more. (6) As a part of your healthcare team, your chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc feels a responsibility to encourage physical activity so that you can manage your own health a bit more. Our younger back pain and neck pain sufferers benefit. Our older adults with aches and pains and/or Largo back pain and/or neck pain benefit, too!
