Richmond 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 pop coming. It is similar with Richmond back pain. If you believe your back to be painful, it often is. Johnson Chiropractic cares for back pain patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Johnson Chiropractic strives to help our Richmond back pain patients experience back pain relief and find a way to not expect their backs to hurt.

Richmond BACK PAIN PERCEPTION

Researchers publish that perception of pain is influenced 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 actual experience of pain. (1) It is no wonder, then, that back pain patients - those with spondylosis, intervertebral disc disorders among others – have issues with depression. (2) They expect a life without back pain, yet they suffer with  back pain. There is a disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for Richmond back pain patients involves not just treating the basis of back pain but its influences on the whole person, mind and body.

Richmond BACK PAIN FEAR

Patients fear Richmond 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 affect patient outcomes. (3) Back pain specialists who understand these perceived needs can deal with these needs, can talk about these needs and can describe how these needs are being met with the Richmond chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your sought after and deserved pain relief.

Richmond BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION

Luckily, spinal manipulation shows itself worthy of use by Richmond back pain patients as research reports that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain patients need. (As an aside, how were these findings recorded? With amazing new MRI technology that examines brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson 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 seemed to be safe interventions guiding the researchers to suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising. (5) Johnson Chiropractic understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
