Groton Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain

Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a noise coming. It is similar with Groton back pain. If you anticipate that your back to hurt, it often is. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office cares for back pain patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office strives to help our Groton back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.


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 affects the actual experience of pain. (1) It is not surprising, 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 is a disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for Groton back pain patients involves not just treating the source of back pain but its influences on the whole person, mind and body.


Patients fear Groton 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 deal with these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain how these needs are being met with the Groton chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your desired and deserved pain relief.


Luckily, spinal manipulation shows itself worthy of use by Groton back pain patients as research reports that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain patients feel. (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 Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office delivers the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation and mobilization likely reduce pain and improve function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging. (5) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a variety of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
