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
pop coming. It is similar with Sitka
back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka strives to help our Sitka
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Sitka BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish 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 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
Sitka back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Sitka BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Sitka back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Sitka chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Sitka BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Sitka back pain patients as research reports
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 examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka delivers
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 greater
effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
