Largo Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s different. 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.


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.


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!
