Montreal Chiropractic Care Relief for Back Pain and Fear of Back Pain

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.


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 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 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.


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.


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.
