Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about a lot of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common in La Grande back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
La Grande chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on La Grande back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits La Grande back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is pretty resilient, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC helps La Grande 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 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
elicits leg pain. If you experience back pain when you move, you seek not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a La Grande 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 does not make a big deal out of it, he
or she does not get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC empathizes
with the La Grande back pain patient who does not want
to move too much due to fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.
