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.
