Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a
balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there’s a
noise coming. It’s the same with St. Francisville
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville works to help our St. Francisville
back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
St. Francisville BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is affected
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the actual
sensation of pain. However, the greater the difference between the
expectation and the pain, the less the expectation of pain or no pain influences
the real experience of pain. (1) It's no wonder, 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’s a
disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for
St. Francisville back pain patients consists of not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
St. Francisville BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear St. Francisville back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can address
these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the St. Francisville chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
St. Francisville BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by St. Francisville back pain patients as research reports
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients feel. (As an aside, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your St. Francisville chiropractor at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce pain and increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
