Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common in Groton back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Groton chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Groton back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Groton back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may hurt. The spine
is pretty sturdy, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office assists Groton back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you suffer
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
provokes 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 Groton 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 does not 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) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office understands
with the Groton back pain patient who doesn’t want
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
