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
pop coming. It is similar with Severna Park
back pain. If you expect your back to be
painful, it often is. Back And Neck Care Center cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Back And Neck Care Center strives to help our Severna Park
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Severna Park BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is influenced
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
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'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
Severna Park back pain patients consists of not just treating
the source of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Severna Park BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Severna Park 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 know these perceived needs can address
these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Severna Park chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Severna Park BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Severna Park back pain patients as research tells
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients feel. (As a side note, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center delivers
the gentlest form 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 better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Back And Neck Care Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
