Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
noise coming. It is the same with West Palm Beach
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Chiropractic Care cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Chiropractic Care strives to help our West Palm Beach
back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
West Palm Beach BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is shaped
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 affects
the actual experience of pain. (1) It is not
surprising, then, that back pain patients - those with spondylosis,
intervertebral disc disorders among others – have issues 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
West Palm Beach back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
West Palm Beach BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear West Palm Beach back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the West Palm Beach chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
West Palm Beach BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by West Palm Beach 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 experience. (As a side note, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce pain and improve
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Chiropractic Care knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
