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

Have you noticed that if you see someone with a pin approach a balloon, you flinch or cover your ears? You know there is a pop coming. It is similar with Ottawa back pain. If you anticipate that your back to be painful, it often is. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider cares for back pain patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider works to help our Ottawa back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.

Ottawa 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 affects the real experience of pain. (1) It is not surprising, 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 Ottawa back pain patients consists of not just treating the basis of back pain but its effects on the whole person, mind and body.

Ottawa BACK PAIN FEAR

Patients fear Ottawa back pain. Patients want a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often regardless of what the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs influence patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can address these needs, can discuss these needs and can describe how these needs are being met with the Ottawa chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your sought after and deserved pain relief.

Ottawa BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION

Fortunately, spinal manipulation proves itself worthy of use by Ottawa 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 feel. (As a side note, how were these findings documented? With amazing new MRI technology that examines brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider delivers the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself is amazing. Another research study documented 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 guiding the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging. (5) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
