Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common for Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Fernandina Beach chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Fernandina Beach back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Fernandina Beach back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may hurt. The spine
is pretty resilient, but when it is damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic assists Fernandina Beach back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain via
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
cauess leg pain. If you feel back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain though that
if a back pain sufferer has pain in the early days of
back pain and doesn’t make a big deal out of it, he
or she doesn’t get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic empathizes
with the Fernandina Beach 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 that last time.

of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to manage the pain. (2) The Fernandina Beach chiropractic
treatment plan at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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 eases.
