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.
Brooks BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
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.
Brooks BACK PAIN FEAR
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.
Brooks BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
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.
