West Des Moines Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain

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 noise coming. It is similar with West Des Moines back pain. If you expect your back to hurt, it often is. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa cares for back pain patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa strives to help our West Des Moines back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.

West Des Moines 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 real experience of pain. (1) It is no wonder, 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 West Des Moines back pain patients consists of not just treating the basis of back pain but its effects on the whole person, mind and body.

West Des Moines BACK PAIN FEAR

Patients fear West Des Moines back pain. Patients want a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what the medical guidelines say). These perceived needs patient by patients with back pain affect patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can address these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain how these needs are being met with the West Des Moines chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your sought after and deserved pain relief.

West Des Moines BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION

Luckily, spinal manipulation proves itself worthy of use by West Des Moines back pain patients as research tells that it may reduce 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 investigates brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your West Des Moines chiropractor at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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 improve function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater effect than mobilization. Both appeared to be safe interventions leading the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising. (5) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
