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 similar with Plainville
back pain. If you expect your back to hurt, it often is. Layden Chiropractic cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Layden Chiropractic strives to help our Plainville
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Plainville BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is affected
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
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 real experience of pain. (1) It is not
surprising, 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 is a
disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for
Plainville back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Plainville BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Plainville back pain. Patients desire
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 know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Plainville chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Plainville BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Plainville back pain patients as research states
that it may reduce 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 discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic offers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and increase
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) Layden Chiropractic understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
