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 for Ashburn back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Ashburn chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Ashburn back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Ashburn back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is pretty resilient, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn assists Ashburn back pain
sufferers cope with the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you have
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
cauess leg pain. If you experience back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Ashburn 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 does not make a big deal out of it, he
or she does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn understands
