Watertown 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’s a noise coming. It is the same with Watertown back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be painful, it often is. Watertown Wellness Center cares for back pain patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Watertown Wellness Center strives to help our Watertown back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.

Watertown BACK PAIN PERCEPTION

Researchers write 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 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’s a disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for Watertown back pain patients consists of not just treating the source of back pain but its effects on the whole person, mind and body.

Watertown BACK PAIN FEAR

Patients fear Watertown back pain. Patients want a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what the medical guidelines say). These perceived needs patient by patients with back pain influence patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can address these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe how these needs are being met with the Watertown chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your sought after and deserved pain relief.

Watertown BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION

Luckily, spinal manipulation proves itself worthy of use by Watertown back pain patients as research states that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain patients need. (As a side note, how were these findings documented? With amazing new MRI technology that examines brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your Watertown chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center delivers the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation and mobilization likely reduce pain and improve 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) Watertown Wellness Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.

Listen to this PODCAST with Australian chiropractor, Dr. Camercon McConville, on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. McConville discusses how he combines a variety of treatment approaches to help his patients return to the activities they desire to do without always feeling the fear of pain.
