Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain 02/19/2019Have 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.
