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 Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Burlington and Hamilton back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Burlington and Hamilton back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is pretty resilient, but when it’s damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Spinal Care Clinic assists Burlington and Hamilton back pain
sufferers manage 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 strive 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 have back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers point out though that
if a back pain sufferer experiences 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) Spinal Care Clinic understands
with the Burlington and Hamilton back pain patient who does not desire
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.

of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic

pressure on the spinal nerves and bring motion back to the
