Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
noise coming. It is the same with Burlington and Hamilton
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. Spinal Care Clinic cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Spinal Care Clinic strives to help our Burlington and Hamilton
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Burlington and Hamilton BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is influenced
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 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. Treating
Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Burlington and Hamilton BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Burlington and Hamilton back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can address
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Burlington and Hamilton BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients as research states
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As a side note, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic 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 increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Spinal Care Clinic knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
