Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
noise coming. It is the same with Sandy Springs
back pain. If you expect your back to hurt, it often is. Cross Chiropractic Center cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Cross Chiropractic Center works to help our Sandy Springs
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Sandy Springs BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is shaped
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 actual experience of pain. (1) It's no wonder, 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
Sandy Springs back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Sandy Springs BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Sandy Springs back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Sandy Springs chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Sandy Springs BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Sandy Springs back pain patients as research states
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As a side note, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center offers
the gentlest type 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 appeared to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Cross Chiropractic Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
