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 for Auburn back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Auburn chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Auburn back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps Auburn back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is rather sturdy, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. helps Auburn back pain
sufferers cope with the fear of back pain via
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 suffer
with back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Auburn back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain though that
if a back pain sufferer feels pain in the early days of
back pain and doesn’t make a big deal out of it, he
or she does not get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands
with the Auburn back pain patient who does not want
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.
