Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches a balloon with a pin? You know there is a pop coming. It’s the same with Easley back pain. If you expect your back to hurt, it often is. Young Chiropractic cares for back pain patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Young Chiropractic strives to help our Easley back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Easley BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is affected 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's no wonder, 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 Easley back pain patients involves not just treating the source of back pain but its influences on the whole person, mind and body.
Easley BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Easley 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 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 Easley chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Easley BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation shows itself worthy of use by Easley back pain patients as research states that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain patients experience. (As a side note, how were these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI technology that examines brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4) Your Easley chiropractor at Young 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 improve 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 promising. (5) Young Chiropractic knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
