Fear of the “damaged spine.” It is a most common
feeling to have about any number of things in life. Fear avoidance.
It’s common for Montreal back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Montreal chiropractic physician are aware of the effects
of fear and fear avoidance on Montreal back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear limits Montreal back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is rather resilient, but when it is damaged
its resiliency disappears in the mind of its
owner. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic assists Montreal 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 strive to avoid that something like
shuffling paper in a way that you get a paper cut or bending a certain way that
aggravates leg pain. If you feel back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-provoking activity
for a Montreal 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 trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands
with the Montreal 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.

of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of

Cox Technic to make larger 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 eases.
