Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
pop coming. It’s the same with Lynchburg
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to hurt, it often is. Palmer Chiropractic Center cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Palmer Chiropractic Center strives to help our Lynchburg
back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Lynchburg BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is shaped
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's no wonder, 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’s a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
Lynchburg back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Lynchburg BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Lynchburg back pain. Patients want
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 address
these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Lynchburg chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Lynchburg BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Lynchburg back pain patients as research states
that it may decrease 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 studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center delivers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported 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 encouraging.
(5) Palmer Chiropractic Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
