Baton Rouge 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 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 daily 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.


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.


Patients fear Baton Rouge back pain. Patients desire a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived needs patient by patients with back pain 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.


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 need. (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.
