Pensacola 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’s the same with Pensacola back pain. If you anticipate that your back to hurt, it often is. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center cares for back pain patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center works to help our Pensacola back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.


Researchers publish that perception of pain is shaped by both the expectation of pain (or no pain) and the actual 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 real experience of pain. (1) It's 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. Caring for Pensacola back pain patients consists of not just treating the basis of back pain but its effects on the whole person, mind and body.


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


Luckily, spinal manipulation proves itself worthy of use by Pensacola 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 need. (As a side note, how were these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI technology that studies brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center delivers the gentlest form of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation and mobilization likely decrease pain and increase function for chronic low back pain. Manipulation has a greater effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions guiding the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising. (5) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
