Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It is common in Toronto back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Toronto chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Toronto back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear keeps Toronto back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may experience pain. The spine
is pretty sturdy, but when it’s damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps Toronto 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 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 suffer
with back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Toronto back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain 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 does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands
with the Toronto back pain patient who does not want
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.

Gentle Care and Motion
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre joins motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
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 lowered the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Toronto chiropractic
treatment plan at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encompasses gentle, comforting
Cox Technic to open 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 improves.
Make an Appointment
Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may get
