Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
noise coming. It’s similar with Paramus
back pain. If you believe your back to hurt, it often is. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center cares for back pain
patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center works to help our Paramus
back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Paramus BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is influenced
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the actual
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 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
Paramus back pain patients involves not just treating
the basis of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Paramus BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Paramus back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived needs
patient by patients with back pain 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 Paramus chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Paramus BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Paramus back pain patients as research reports
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 recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center delivers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported that manipulation
and mobilization likely decrease pain and increase
function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater
effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a variety
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
