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.
Manahawkin 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 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.
Manahawkin BACK PAIN FEAR
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.
Manahawkin BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
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.
