Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a
balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there is a
pop coming. It is the same with San Jose
back pain. If you expect your back to be
painful, it often is. Chiropractic Solutions cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Chiropractic Solutions works to help our San Jose
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
San Jose 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 greater 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
San Jose back pain patients consists of not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
San Jose BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear San Jose back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived needs
patient by patients with back pain influence 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 San Jose chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
San Jose BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by San Jose back pain patients as research tells
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients need. (As an aside, how were
these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your San Jose chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and improve
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising.
(5) Chiropractic Solutions knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a variety
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
