Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
pop coming. It is similar with Malverne
back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Malverne Health & Wellness cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Malverne Health & Wellness strives to help our Malverne
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Malverne BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is shaped
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 influences
the actual experience of pain. (1) It's 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
Malverne back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Malverne BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Malverne 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 know these perceived needs can address
these needs, can talk about these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Malverne chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Malverne BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Malverne back pain patients as research states
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As a side note, how were
these findings documented? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness delivers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented 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 promising.
(5) Malverne Health & Wellness understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
