Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a
balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there’s a
pop coming. It’s the same with Fort Wayne
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc strives to help our Fort Wayne
back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Fort Wayne 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 bigger 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 is a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
Fort Wayne back pain patients consists of not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Fort Wayne BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Fort Wayne back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived needs
patient by patients with back pain influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Fort Wayne chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Fort Wayne BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Fort Wayne 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 need. (As an aside, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc delivers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease 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 promising.
(5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
