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’s similar with Vancouver
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. Vancouver Spine Care Centre cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Vancouver Spine Care Centre strives to help our Vancouver
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Vancouver 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 influences
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 is a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
Vancouver back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Vancouver BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Vancouver back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived needs
patient by patients with back pain affect 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 Vancouver chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Vancouver BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Vancouver 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 discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 encouraging.
(5) Vancouver Spine Care Centre understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
