Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common in Minster back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Minster chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Minster back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Minster back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is pretty sturdy, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Minster Chiropractic Center helps Minster back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you feel
pain with something, you attempt to avoid that something like
shuffling paper in a way that you get a paper cut or bending a certain way that
produces 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 Minster 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 doesn’t get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center understands
with the Minster back pain patient who doesn’t desire
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
Minster Chiropractic Center positively gets Minster back pain
sufferers moving and doing their normal activities of daily life
one little motion at a time!
Gentle Care and Motion
Minster Chiropractic Center integrates motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Minster Chiropractic Center
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that accompanies it. Incorporating manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier increased the success
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Minster chiropractic
treatment plan at Minster Chiropractic Center includes gentle, comforting
Cox Technic to make larger the spinal canal and relieve
pressure on the spinal nerves as well as bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain improves.
Make an Appointment
Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may spur
a back pain sufferer to seek non-surgical care like
that offered at Minster Chiropractic Center. Listen
in to this podcast of a patient who didn’t want a second back
surgery and got relief with Cox Technic. He even got back
to exercising and moving which he quit due to pain!
