Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
pop coming. It is similar with New Roads
back pain. If you expect your back to hurt, it often is. New Roads Chiropractic Center cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. New Roads Chiropractic Center works to help our New Roads
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
New Roads BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is shaped
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
sensation of pain. However, the bigger the difference between the
expectation and the pain, the less the expectation of pain or no pain affects
the real experience of pain. (1) It is not
surprising, then, that back pain patients - those with spondylosis,
intervertebral disc disorders among others – struggle with
depression. (2) They expect a life without back pain, yet
they suffer with back pain. There is a
disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for
New Roads back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
New Roads BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear New Roads back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the New Roads chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
New Roads BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by New Roads back pain patients as research reports
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients need. (As an aside, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that investigates brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center offers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and improve
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) New Roads Chiropractic Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
