September 05, 2017

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 for Easley back pain sufferers. When back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your Easley chiropractic physician recognize the effects of fear and fear avoidance on Easley back pain and neck pain patients. Fear prevents Easley back pain sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine is rather sturdy, but when it is damaged its resiliency disappears in the mind of its owner. Young Chiropractic helps Easley back pain sufferers contain the fear of back pain via information, care, and movement.

The Sense of Fear

Fear itself makes sense. If you feel 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 experience back pain when you move, you seek not to move like that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity for a Easley back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain though that if a back pain sufferer experiences 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.
