Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common for Colorado Springs back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Colorado Springs chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Colorado Springs back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may hurt. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it’s damaged
its sturdiness disappears in the mind of its
owner. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR assists Colorado Springs 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 strive 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 feel back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Colorado Springs back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain though that
if a back pain sufferer experiences 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR empathizes
with the Colorado Springs back pain patient who doesn’t desire
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.

Gentle Care and Motion
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR incorporates motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
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 decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Colorado Springs chiropractic
treatment plan at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR involves gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to make larger the spinal canal and relieve
pressure on the spinal nerves and bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain improves.
