Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there is a
noise coming. It’s similar with Montreal
back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be
painful, it often is. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic strives to help our Montreal
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Montreal BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers write that perception of pain is shaped
by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the real
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 actual 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. Treating
Montreal back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Montreal BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Montreal back pain. Patients want
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can talk about these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Montreal chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Montreal BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Montreal back pain patients as research states
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 a side note, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that examines brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers
the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported 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 leading
the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
