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

Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a noise coming. It is the same with Manahawkin back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be painful, it often is. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center cares for back pain patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center works to help our Manahawkin back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.


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 greater the difference between the expectation and the pain, the less the expectation of pain or no pain affects the real experience of pain. (1) It's 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’s a disconnect between perception and reality. Treating Manahawkin back pain patients involves not just treating the basis of back pain but its influences on the whole person, mind and body.


Patients fear Manahawkin back pain. Patients want a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can address these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain how these needs are being met with the Manahawkin 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 Manahawkin back pain patients as research states 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 an aside, how were these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI technology that studies brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center delivers the gentlest type 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 greater effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
