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 pop coming. It is similar with Southern New Hampshire back pain. If you expect your back to hurt, it often is. New Hampshire Spine and Sport cares for back pain patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. New Hampshire Spine and Sport works to help our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Southern New Hampshire 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 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 no wonder, 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 is a disconnect between perception and reality. Treating Southern New Hampshire back pain patients consists of not just treating the source of back pain but its influences on the whole person, mind and body.
Southern New Hampshire BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Southern New Hampshire back pain. Patients desire a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what the medical guidelines say). These perceived needs patient by patients with back pain affect patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain how these needs are being met with the Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Southern New Hampshire BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows itself worthy of use by Southern New Hampshire back pain patients as research states that it may reduce 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 recorded? With amazing new MRI technology that studies brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4) Your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor at New Hampshire Spine and Sport delivers the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation and mobilization likely decrease pain and improve function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising. (5) New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
