Brooks Fear of Back Pain Relieved with Soft Health and Healing Clinic

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 for Brooks back pain sufferers. When back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your Brooks chiropractic physician are aware of the influences of fear and fear avoidance on Brooks back pain and neck pain patients. Fear prevents Brooks back pain sufferers from doing the simplest things because they worry that they may make the pain worse. The spine is pretty resilient, but when it is damaged its resiliency fades in the mind of its owner. Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps Brooks back pain sufferers manage the fear of back pain via information, care, and movement.

The Sense of Fear

Fear itself makes sense. If you feel 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 elicits leg pain. If you have back pain when you move, you try not to move like that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity for a Brooks back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her damaged back makes good sense. Researchers point out though that if a back pain sufferer has 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.
