Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
pop coming. It’s similar with Fernandina Beach
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic strives to help our Fernandina Beach
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Fernandina Beach BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write 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 real experience of pain. (1) It is 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. Caring for
Fernandina Beach back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Fernandina Beach BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Fernandina Beach back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Fernandina Beach BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Fernandina Beach 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 documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
