Carrolltown Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain

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.


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 needs patient by patients with back pain 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.


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 approaches to help get you the relief you want.
