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 Murfreesboro back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Murfreesboro chiropractic physician are aware of the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Murfreesboro back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Murfreesboro 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 fades in the mind of its
owner. Most Chiropractic Clinic assists Murfreesboro back pain
sufferers manage the fear of back pain via
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you suffer
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
provokes 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 Murfreesboro 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 huge deal out of it, he
or she doesn’t get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic empathizes
with the Murfreesboro 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.

Gentle Care and Motion
Most Chiropractic Clinic incorporates motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Most Chiropractic Clinic
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that accompanies it. Adding manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier increased the effectiveness
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to manage the pain. (2) The Murfreesboro chiropractic
treatment plan at Most Chiropractic Clinic involves gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to open the spinal canal and relieve
pressure on the spinal nerves as well as bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain eases.

Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may spur
