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 Plymouth
back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology strives to help our Plymouth
back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Plymouth BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is affected
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 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
Plymouth back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Plymouth BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Plymouth back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Plymouth chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Plymouth BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Plymouth back pain patients as research reports
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As an aside, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that investigates brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Plymouth chiropractor at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce pain and improve
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
