Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common in Plainville back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Plainville chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Plainville back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps Plainville back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may experience pain. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it is damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Layden Chiropractic assists Plainville back pain
sufferers cope with the fear of back pain through
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you have
pain with something, you strive to avoid that something like
shuffling paper in a way that you get a paper cut or bending a certain way that
cauess leg pain. If you feel back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Plainville back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers point out though that
if a back pain sufferer experiences pain in the early days of
back pain and does not make a huge deal out of it, he
or she does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Layden Chiropractic understands
with the Plainville back pain patient who doesn’t want
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.
