Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a
balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there is a
noise coming. It is the same with Pflugerville
back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Pflugerville Wellness Center cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Pflugerville Wellness Center strives to help our Pflugerville
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Pflugerville BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is affected
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
sensation of pain. However, the greater 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 – 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. Caring for
Pflugerville back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Pflugerville BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Pflugerville 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 know these perceived needs can address
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Pflugerville chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Pflugerville BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Pflugerville 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 an aside, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that investigates brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center offers
the gentlest form 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 guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Pflugerville Wellness Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
