The Value of Largo Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? Hollstrom & Associates Inc is all about healthy living. Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Largo chiropractic patients can expect their Largo chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only assist them deal with exisiting spine pain issues but also ward off future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best prevented.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Not smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, don’t they? A recent study described that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had decreased risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Consuming fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to lessen the chance of developing long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program enhances the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support belt increases postural control when standing on unlevel ground.  This may be notably helpful for patients with non-specific low back pain as they are prone to be more unstable. (4) Hollstrom & Associates Inc works with our Largo back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief reports that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications motivated their choice.
