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
noise coming. It is the same with Minster
back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Minster Chiropractic Center cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Minster Chiropractic Center strives to help our Minster
back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Minster BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is shaped
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
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 no wonder, 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. Treating
Minster back pain patients consists of not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Minster BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Minster back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines say). 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 explain
how these needs are being met with the Minster chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Minster BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Minster back pain patients as research tells
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients need. (As a side note, how were
these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center delivers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported 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 leading
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Minster 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.
