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

Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there is a noise coming. It’s similar with Brooks back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Soft Health and Healing Clinic cares for back pain patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Soft Health and Healing Clinic works to help our Brooks back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.


Researchers publish that perception of pain is influenced by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real 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 actual 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 Brooks back pain patients consists of not just treating the source of back pain but its influences on the whole person, mind and body.


Patients fear Brooks back pain. Patients want a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can address these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain how these needs are being met with the Brooks chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your desired and deserved pain relief.


Luckily, spinal manipulation proves itself worthy of use by Brooks back pain patients as research reports that it may decrease 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 documented? With amazing new MRI technology that investigates brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 improve function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions leading the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a variety of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.

Listen to this PODCAST with Australian chiropractor, Dr. Camercon McConville, on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. McConville discusses how he combines a variety of treatment methods to help his patients return to the activities they want to do without always experiencing the fear of pain.
