Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common for Vancouver back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Vancouver chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Vancouver back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Vancouver 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. Vancouver Disc Centers assists Vancouver back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain via
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you suffer
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
cauess leg pain. If you suffer
with back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Vancouver 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 huge deal out of it, he
or she does not get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers understands

to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
