Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common in Largo back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Largo chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Largo back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Largo back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it is damaged
its resiliency fades in the mind of its
owner. Hollstrom & Associates Inc assists Largo back pain
sufferers contain 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 try 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 have back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Largo 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 doesn’t get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc empathizes
with the Largo back pain patient who does not want
to move too much due to fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
