Have you found yourself flinching when someone approaches
a balloon with a pin? You know there’s a
noise coming. It’s similar with Buffalo, NY
back pain. If you expect your back to be
painful, it often is. The Novelli Wellness Center cares for back pain
patients every day with that balloon-pop instinct for back pain’s
intensity. The Novelli Wellness Center strives to help our Buffalo, NY
back pain patients experience back pain relief and learn to not expect their backs to hurt.
Buffalo, NY BACK PAIN PERCEPTION
Researchers publish that perception of pain is influenced
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 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’s a
disconnect between perception and reality. Caring for
Buffalo, NY back pain patients involves not just treating
the source of back pain but its effects on the
whole person, mind and body.
Buffalo, NY BACK PAIN FEAR
Patients fear Buffalo, NY back pain. Patients desire
a diagnosis, pain control and imaging (often despite what
the medical guidelines dictate). These perceived patient needs affect patient outcomes.
(3) Back pain specialists who know these perceived needs can deal with
these needs, can discuss these needs and can explain
how these needs are being met with the Buffalo, NY chiropractic
treatment plan. Your chiropractor wants what is best for you
and your desired and deserved pain relief.
Buffalo, NY BACK PAIN RELIEF WITH SPINAL MANIPULATION
Luckily, spinal manipulation proves
itself worthy of use by Buffalo, NY back pain patients as research tells
that it may decrease the expectation of pain, the fear of movement
and other related brain responses that chronic low back pain
patients experience. (As a side note, how were
these findings discovered? With amazing new MRI
technology that investigates brain function and blood
oxygen level signaling! Amazing!). (4)
Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at The Novelli Wellness Center offers
the gentlest type of spinal manipulation, Cox Technic, that itself
is amazing. Another research study documented that manipulation
and mobilization likely reduce 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 suggest that a multimodal treatment plan may be encouraging.
(5) The Novelli Wellness Center understands this to be true! Your treatment plan will consist of a mix
of treatment tactics to help get you the relief you want.
