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’s similar with Williamson
back pain. If you expect your back to be
painful, it often is. Apple Country Chiropractic cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Apple Country Chiropractic works to help our Williamson
back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Williamson 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 greater 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 – 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
Williamson back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Williamson BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Williamson back pain. Patients want
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 understand these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Williamson chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Williamson BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Williamson 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 need. (As a side note, how were
these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that investigates brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic delivers
the gentlest type 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 seemed to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Apple Country 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.
