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 Watertown back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Watertown chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Watertown back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Watertown 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 disappears in the mind of its
owner. Watertown Wellness Center helps Watertown back pain
sufferers contain the fear of back pain with
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
cauess leg pain. If you suffer
with back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Watertown 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 big deal out of it, he
or she does not get caught in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Watertown Wellness Center understands
with the Watertown back pain patient who does not desire
to move too much because of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.

Gentle Care and Motion
Watertown Wellness Center joins motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Watertown Wellness Center
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 success
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to control the pain. (2) The Watertown chiropractic
treatment plan at Watertown Wellness Center encompasses gentle, comforting
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 eases.

Fear may be a good thing, too. Fear of back surgery may spur
a back pain sufferer to seek non-surgical care like

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