Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common in Manahawkin back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Manahawkin chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Manahawkin back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Manahawkin 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 resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center assists Manahawkin back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain through
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you experience
pain with something, you try to avoid that something like
shuffling paper in a way that you get a paper cut or bending a certain way that
elicits leg pain. If you suffer
with back pain when you move, you seek not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Manahawkin 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 doesn’t make a huge deal out of it, he
or she doesn’t get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center empathizes
with the Manahawkin back pain patient who does not desire
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
