Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
noise coming. It’s similar with Preston
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Chiropractic Associates cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Chiropractic Associates works to help our Preston
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Preston BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is shaped
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the actual
sensation of pain. However, the bigger 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 – have issues 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
Preston back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Preston BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Preston back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what
the medical guidelines say). These perceived needs
patient by patients with back pain influence 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 Preston chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Preston BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Preston back pain patients as research reports
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients feel. (As an aside, how were
these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Preston chiropractor at Chiropractic Associates delivers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and improve
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Chiropractic Associates knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
