Colorado Springs 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 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.


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 consists of 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.


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 propose 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.
