Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
pop coming. It’s similar with Ashburn
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn works to help our Ashburn
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Ashburn 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 real experience of pain. (1) It's not
surprising, then, that back pain patients - those with spondylosis,
intervertebral disc disorders among others – struggle 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
Ashburn back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Ashburn BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Ashburn back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines say). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Ashburn chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Ashburn BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Ashburn back pain patients as research tells
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related 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 Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
