Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
noise coming. It is similar with Carrolltown
back pain. If you expect your back to be
painful, it often is. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation strives to help our Carrolltown
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Carrolltown BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is affected
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 real 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. Caring for
Carrolltown back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Carrolltown BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Carrolltown back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can address
these needs, can talk about these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Carrolltown chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Carrolltown BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Carrolltown 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 need. (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 Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce 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 suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
