Toronto Fear of Back Pain Relieved with Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre

Fear of the “damaged spine.” It’s a most common feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance. It’s 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 rather 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.
