Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a
balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there’s a
noise coming. It’s similar with Oxford
back pain. If you believe your back to be
painful, it often is. Satterwhite Chiropractic cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. Satterwhite Chiropractic strives to help our Oxford
back pain patients feel back pain relief and find a
way to not expect their backs to hurt.
Oxford 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 greater the difference between the
expectation and the pain, the less the expectation of pain or no pain affects
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. Treating
Oxford back pain patients consists of not just treating
the source of back pain but its influences on the
whole person, mind and body.
Oxford BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Oxford 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 influence patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe
how these needs are being met with the Oxford chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your sought after and deserved pain relief.
Oxford BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Fortunately, spinal manipulation shows
itself worthy of use by Oxford back pain patients as research tells
that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients feel. (As a side note, how were
these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI
technology that studies brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study reported 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
