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’s similar with Baton Rouge
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Spine & Sports Rehab Center cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Spine & Sports Rehab Center works to help our Baton Rouge
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Baton Rouge BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish 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 real experience of pain. (1) It's 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’s a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
Baton Rouge back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Baton Rouge BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Baton Rouge back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived needs
patient by patients with back pain influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Baton Rouge chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Baton Rouge BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Baton Rouge back pain patients as research states
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients feel. (As a side note, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center delivers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce 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 propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
