St. Francisville Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain

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.
