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. Hutter Chiropractic Office cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. 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.
Groton 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 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.
Groton BACK PAIN FEAR
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.
Groton BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
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 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) Hutter Chiropractic Office knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
