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 Buffalo, NY back pain sufferers. When
back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your
Buffalo, NY chiropractic physician recognize the influences
of fear and fear avoidance on Buffalo, NY back pain and neck pain
patients. Fear prevents Buffalo, NY back pain
sufferers from doing the simplest things because they
worry that they may hurt. The spine
is pretty resilient, but when it’s damaged
its sturdiness fades in the mind of its
owner. The Novelli Wellness Center helps Buffalo, NY back pain
sufferers cope with the fear of back pain with
information, care, and movement.
The Sense of Fear
Fear itself makes sense. If you experience
pain with something, you seek 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 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 Buffalo, NY 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 doesn’t get trapped in trying to avoid
movement, in the fear avoidance cycle. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center understands
with the Buffalo, NY back pain patient who doesn’t want
to move too much due to fear that his or her back will
hurt again or maybe even worse than before.

Gentle Care and Motion
The Novelli Wellness Center joins motion
into its in-office chiropractic care and its at-home recommendation care. The Novelli Wellness Center
is all about motion and easing back pain and the fear that goes
along with it. Adding manipulation to the
treatment of low back pain earlier sped up the success
of manipulation on back pain relief and decreased the use of
medication to manage the pain. (2) The Buffalo, NY chiropractic
treatment plan at The Novelli Wellness Center includes 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 lessens.
