McHenry 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’s a noise coming. It’s similar with McHenry back pain. If you expect your back to be painful, it often is. Spengel Chiropractic cares for back pain patients daily with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s intensity. Spengel Chiropractic strives to help our McHenry back pain patients feel back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.

McHenry BACK PAIN PERCEPTION

Researchers write 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 affects the real experience of pain. (1) It's not surprising, 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 McHenry back pain patients consists of not just treating the source of back pain but its effects on the whole person, mind and body.

McHenry BACK PAIN FEAR

Patients fear McHenry back pain. Patients want a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite 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 address these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain how these needs are being met with the McHenry chiropractic treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you and your sought after and deserved pain relief.

McHenry BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION

Fortunately, spinal manipulation proves itself worthy of use by McHenry back pain patients as research states that it may reduce the expectation of pain, the fear of movement and other associated brain responses that chronic low back pain patients feel. (As an aside, how were these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI technology that examines brain function and blood oxygen level signaling! Amazing!).  (4) Your McHenry chiropractor at Spengel Chiropractic 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 better effect than mobilization. Both seemed to be safe interventions leading the researchers to propose that a multimodal treatment plan may be promising. (5) Spengel Chiropractic knows this to be true! Your treatment plan will involve a mix of treatment approaches to help get you the relief you want.
