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 for Fort Wayne back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Fort Wayne chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Fort Wayne back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is rather sturdy, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic assists Fort Wayne back pain
sufferers contain the fear of back pain through
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you have
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 feel back pain when you move, you seek not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Fort Wayne back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers point out though that
if a back pain sufferer feels pain in the early days of
back pain and doesn’t 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic empathizes
with the Fort Wayne back pain patient who doesn’t desire
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.

is all about motion and easing back pain and the fear that goes
along with it. Adding manipulation to the

of manipulation on back pain relief and lowered the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Fort Wayne chiropractic

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.
