Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
pop coming. It is similar with Largo
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Hollstrom & Associates Inc cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Hollstrom & Associates Inc works to help our Largo
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Largo 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 influences
the actual experience of pain. (1) It's 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’s a
disconnect between perception and reality. Treating
Largo back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Largo BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Largo back pain. Patients desire
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 deal with
these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Largo chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Largo BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Largo back pain patients as research reports
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related 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 Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc delivers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce pain and increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a better
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
