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 Plymouth back pain sufferers. When
back pain enters the scene, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Plymouth chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Plymouth back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Plymouth back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may hurt. The spine
is rather sturdy, but when it is damaged
its sturdiness disappears in the mind of its
owner. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology helps Plymouth back pain
sufferers contain 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 have back pain when you move, you attempt not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Plymouth back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain though that
if a back pain sufferer has pain in the early days of
back pain and does not make a huge deal out of it, he
or she does not get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology understands
with the Plymouth back pain patient who doesn’t want
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology positively gets Plymouth back pain
sufferers moving and doing their normal activities of daily life
one little motion at a time!
Gentle Care and Motion
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology integrates motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that goes
along with it. Incorporating manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier enhanced the success
of manipulation on back pain relief and lowered the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Plymouth chiropractic
treatment plan at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology includes gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to open the spinal canal and reduce
pressure on the spinal nerves and bring motion back to the
spine as the back pain and/or leg pain lessens.

Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may get
a back pain sufferer to pursue non-surgical care as available at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology. Listen

surgery and found relief with Cox Technic. He even got back
to exercising and moving which he stopped due to pain!
