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 New York City back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
New York City chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on New York City back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits New York City back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may hurt. The spine
is pretty sturdy, but when it is damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Innate Wisdom assists New York City back pain
sufferers cope with the fear of back pain through
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
elicits leg pain. If you suffer
with back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a New York City 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 big deal out of it, he
or she does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Innate Wisdom understands
with the New York City back pain patient who does not want
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
