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.
