Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common in Millville back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Millville chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Millville back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Millville back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is rather sturdy, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency fades in the mind of its
owner. Wilson Family Chiropractic helps Millville back pain
sufferers contain 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 seek 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 feel back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Millville 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 doesn’t make a big deal out of it, he
or she doesn’t get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic empathizes
with the Millville 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.
Wilson Family Chiropractic positively gets Millville back pain
sufferers moving and doing their normal activities of daily life
one tiny motion at a time!
Gentle Care and Motion
Wilson Family Chiropractic integrates motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Wilson Family Chiropractic
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that goes
along with it. Incorporating manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier increased the success
of manipulation on back pain relief and lowered the use of
medication to manage the pain. (2) The Millville chiropractic
treatment plan at Wilson Family Chiropractic encompasses gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to open the spinal canal and lessen
pressure on the spinal nerves as well as bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain lessens.
Make an Appointment
Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may get
a back pain sufferer to seek non-surgical care as available at Wilson Family Chiropractic. Listen
in to this podcast of a patient who didn’t want a second back
surgery and found relief with Cox Technic. He even returned
to exercising and moving which he stopped due to pain!
