West Palm Beach 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 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.


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 consists of 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.


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 delivers 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 propose 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.
