Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
noise coming. It is the same with Baton Rouge
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to hurt, it often is. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation strives 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 write that perception of pain is affected
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
sensation of pain. However, the bigger the difference between the
expectation and the pain, the less the expectation of pain or no pain influences
the real experience of pain. (1) It is no wonder, 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
Baton Rouge back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its influences 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 regardless of what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can address
these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain
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
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Baton Rouge back pain patients as research tells
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As a side note, how were
these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers
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 greater
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
