Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common for Vancouver back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Vancouver chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Vancouver back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps Vancouver back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry 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 Spine Care Centre assists Vancouver back pain
sufferers manage 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 seek 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 seek 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 doesn’t get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre empathizes
with the Vancouver back pain patient who does not desire
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.

Gentle Care and Motion
Vancouver Spine Care Centre integrates motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Vancouver Spine Care Centre
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that accompanies it. Adding manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier increased the success
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Vancouver chiropractic
treatment plan at Vancouver Spine Care Centre includes gentle, comforting
Cox Technic to open the spinal canal and relieve
pressure on the spinal nerves and bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain eases.
Make an Appointment
Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may spur
a back pain sufferer to seek non-surgical care like
that offered at Vancouver Spine Care Centre. 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!
