Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a
balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there is a
pop coming. It is the same with West Palm Beach
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to hurt, it often is. Moses Chiropractic cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Moses Chiropractic works to help our West Palm Beach
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
West Palm Beach BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is affected
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 actual 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’s a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
West Palm Beach back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
West Palm Beach BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear West Palm Beach back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). 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 talk about these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the West Palm Beach chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
West Palm Beach BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by West Palm Beach back pain patients as research tells
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients need. (As an aside, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that investigates brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Moses Chiropractic 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 increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Moses Chiropractic knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
