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 affected
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’s 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 associated brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As an aside, 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 knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
