Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common for Tonawanda back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Tonawanda chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Tonawanda back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Tonawanda back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may hurt. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation assists Tonawanda back pain
sufferers contain the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you experience
pain with something, you seek 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 experience back pain when you move, you seek not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Tonawanda back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers point out though that
if a back pain sufferer feels pain in the early days of
back pain and does not make a big deal out of it, he
or she does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation empathizes
with the Tonawanda back pain patient who doesn’t desire
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
