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 Two Rivers back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Two Rivers chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Two Rivers back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Two Rivers back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is pretty sturdy, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Lakeshore Chiropractic assists Two Rivers 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 seek 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 suffer
with back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Two Rivers 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. (1) Lakeshore Chiropractic empathizes
with the Two Rivers back pain patient who does not want
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

into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Lakeshore Chiropractic
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that accompanies it. Adding manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier enhanced the effectiveness
of manipulation on back pain relief and lowered the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Two Rivers chiropractic
treatment plan at Lakeshore Chiropractic involves gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to make larger 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.
