Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common in Pflugerville back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Pflugerville chiropractic physician recognize the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Pflugerville back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Pflugerville back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency fades in the mind of its
owner. Pflugerville Wellness Center assists Pflugerville back pain
sufferers contain the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you have
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
elicits 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-producing activity
for a Pflugerville 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 does not make a huge deal out of it, he
or she doesn’t get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center understands
with the Pflugerville back pain patient who doesn’t desire
to move too much due to fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.

pressure on the spinal nerves as well as bring motion back to the
