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 Preston back pain sufferers. When back pain becomes part of life, fear avoidant behavior also creeps in with it. Back pain specialists like your Preston chiropractic physician are aware of the influences of fear and fear avoidance on Preston back pain and neck pain patients.

The spine is rather resilient, but when it’s damaged its sturdiness fades in the mind of its owner. Chiropractic Associates helps Preston back pain sufferers contain the fear of back pain through information, care, and movement.
