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 in New Roads back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
New Roads chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on New Roads back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps New Roads back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may experience pain. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. New Roads Chiropractic Center helps New Roads back pain
sufferers cope with 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 attempt to avoid that something like
shuffling paper in a way that you get a paper cut or bending a certain way that
aggravates leg pain. If you experience back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a New Roads 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 caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center understands
with the New Roads back pain patient who doesn’t want
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.

Gentle Care and Motion

into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. New Roads Chiropractic Center
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that goes
along with it. Incorporating manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier sped up the effectiveness
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The New Roads chiropractic
treatment plan at New Roads Chiropractic Center encompasses gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to open the spinal canal and lighten
pressure on the spinal nerves as well as bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain lessens.
