Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
pop coming. It’s the same with Colorado Springs
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR works to help our Colorado Springs
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Colorado Springs BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is influenced
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the actual
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 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 is a
disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for
Colorado Springs back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Colorado Springs BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Colorado Springs 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 discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Colorado Springs chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Colorado Springs BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Colorado Springs back pain patients as research tells
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients feel. (As a side note, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and improve
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
