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 Vancouver
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. Vancouver Disc Centers cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Vancouver Disc Centers works to help our Vancouver
back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Vancouver BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is shaped
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the actual
sensation of pain. However, the bigger the difference between the
expectation and the pain, the less the expectation of pain or no pain affects
the actual experience of pain. (1) It is 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 is a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
Vancouver back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Vancouver BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Vancouver 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 know these perceived needs can address
these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Vancouver chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Vancouver BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Vancouver back pain patients as research tells
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (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 Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers offers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce pain and increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Vancouver Disc Centers knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
