Largo Chiropractic Incorporates Simple Exercise for Back Pain Relief

So simple: exercise. For a person who has never exercised or leads a sedentary life, it may not be so simple. But for a person with back pain, simple exercise can do so much. Hollstrom & Associates Inc would never press our Largo back pain patients to prep for a marathon, but Hollstrom & Associates Inc gently encourages a walk to the mailbox or down the driveway! Hollstrom & Associates Inc encourages simple exercise to our Largo back pain patients as part of the comprehensive Largo chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief.


Hollstrom & Associates Inc understands that exercise (along with spinal manipulation!) contributes to the recovery of patients who have had Largo back surgery. In one report, a patient with leg pain after back surgery found 89% improvement at a three month follow-up after receiving spinal manipulation and exercise care. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc applies exercise and spinal manipulation through the Cox® Technic system to ease Largo back pain in sufferers after surgery and to prevent back surgery by lessening the back pain symptom generators.


Exercise is a potential treatment for Largo low back pain, obesity and inflammation symptomatology. Why? Adipose, fatty tissue releases numerous types of cytokines - pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory – which heightens the inflammatory response of C-reactive protein which is associated with musculoskeletal pain feeling in back pain sufferers. How does this bother Largo back pain patients? Overweight patients tend to feel more pain. One particular inflammation marker, prostaglandin E2, produces fever and the feeling of pain and inflammation related to low back pain.  Exercise steps in to control these issues. (2) Bottomline: Largo back pain patients would do well to exercise, move, be active, to the degree they can. Begin small. Simple stabilization exercises improved function, inhibited fatigue and improved transverse abdominis contraction in herniated disc back pain patients. (3)  Hollstrom & Associates Inc recommends just wandering to the end of the driveway or corner then increasing the distance a little each trip. Running races is not required! Largo back pain patients notice the change!
