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 in Baton Rouge back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior tends
to creep in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Baton Rouge chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Baton Rouge back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things out of concern that they may make the pain worse. The spine
is pretty resilient, but when it is damaged
its resiliency fades in the mind of its
owner. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation assists Baton Rouge back pain
sufferers contain the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you have
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
elicits leg pain. If you have back pain when you move, you try not to move like
that to avoid back pain. Avoiding back pain-producing activity
for a Baton Rouge back pain sufferer wanting to protect his or her
damaged back makes good sense. Researchers explain though that
if a back pain sufferer experiences pain in the early days of
back pain and does not 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation empathizes
with the Baton Rouge back pain patient who does not desire
to move too much out of fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than that last time.
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation successfully gets Baton Rouge back pain
sufferers moving and doing their normal activities of daily life

Gentle Care and Motion
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation joins motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
is all about motion and relieving back pain and the fear that accompanies it. Incorporating manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier enhanced the effectiveness
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to manage the pain. (2) The Baton Rouge chiropractic
treatment plan at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encompasses gentle, soothing
Cox Technic to make larger the spinal canal and lighten
pressure on the spinal nerves and 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 spur
a back pain sufferer to pursue non-surgical care like

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