Ashburn Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain

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.

Dr. McConville discusses how he incorporates a variety of treatment approaches to help his patients return to the activities they desire to do without always experiencing the fear of pain.
