Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common in West Palm Beach back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
West Palm Beach chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps West Palm Beach back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may hurt. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness disappears in the mind of its
owner. Moses Chiropractic helps West Palm Beach back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain with
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
provokes leg pain. If you experience back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a West Palm Beach back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers point out though that
if a back pain sufferer has pain in the early days of
back pain and does not make a huge deal out of it, he
or she does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Moses Chiropractic understands
with the West Palm Beach back pain patient who doesn’t want
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.
Moses Chiropractic positively gets West Palm Beach back pain
sufferers moving and doing their normal activities of daily life
one small motion at a time!
Gentle Care and Motion
Moses Chiropractic joins motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Moses Chiropractic
is all about motion and easing back pain and the fear that accompanies it. Incorporating manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier increased the effectiveness
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The West Palm Beach chiropractic
treatment plan at Moses Chiropractic encompasses gentle, comforting
Cox Technic to open the spinal canal and relieve
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 Moses Chiropractic. Listen
in to this podcast of a patient who didn’t want a second back
surgery and got relief with Cox Technic. He even returned
to exercising and moving which he quit due to pain!
