Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic first may lessen the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Brooks chiropractic patients know that visiting their chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic is valuable. Their back pain and neck pain reduces. Brooks chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Soft Health and Healing Clinic. A benefit Brooks chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize because they are chiropractic patients presently is that consulting a chiropractor reduces the chance of back surgery. A recent report noted that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider visited for the back pain injury. 42.7% of workers who visited a surgeon|first saw a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first had back surgery. (1) Plus, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is recorded particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is described in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Brooks back pain sufferer, any relief from chiropractic care is pleasing!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was considering back surgery when she visited him for her back pain and found relief with his chiropractic care implementing the Cox® Technic System.

Soft Health and Healing Clinic wishes joy for all our Brooks back pain patients to improve their back pain and their outlook on life.

Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Enjoying the Holiday [Joy|Cheer]33] Helps the Back Pain Sufferer and the Brooks Back Pain!

In developed countries, two of the most familiar reasons to see a doctor were for depression/anxiety and back pain. (3) Seeing these two issues together is not unusual at all at Soft Health and Healing Clinic. Back pain sufferers tend to struggle with depression. 20.2% of back pain patients with spondylosis and disc issues among others suffer with depression and use more money on health care for their conditions. (4) This connection is even stronger for chronic low back pain sufferers. (5) So this holiday season, Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s wish for Brooks back pain sufferers is that they feel the happiness and cheer around them. It just may help their back pain, too! That is the objective of Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic.
