Malverne Fear of Back Pain Relieved with Malverne Health & Wellness

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 Malverne back pain sufferers. When back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your Malverne chiropractic physician recognize the effects of fear and fear avoidance on Malverne back pain and neck pain patients. Fear keeps Malverne back pain sufferers from doing the simplest things because they worry that they may hurt. The spine is pretty resilient, but when it’s damaged its sturdiness fades in the mind of its owner. Malverne Health & Wellness helps Malverne back pain sufferers contain the fear of back pain with 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 produces leg pain. If you have back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity for a Malverne 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.
