Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There’s something for everyone! Hollstrom & Associates Inc hopes
to inspire our Largo back pain patients to exercise and
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain condition! Older adults really feel its effect as it restricts
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise.
All the patients reported that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived.
They needed to keep doing them. The most common issues
for not continuing these activities were additional
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise provided social
support and participants kept going to these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc wants to listen, inspire, and watch
our Largo back pain patients get Largo back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six
weeks of twice-a-week (more so than once a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy resulted in significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Hollstrom & Associates Inc! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Largo
chiropractor must everything possible to manage the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc is ready and willing to do just that to bring
relief to our Largo back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
