Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common for Paramus back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Paramus chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Paramus back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps Paramus back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center assists Paramus back pain
sufferers cope with the fear of back pain via
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you experience
pain with something, you attempt 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 Paramus 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands
with the Paramus back pain patient who doesn’t desire
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
