Brooks Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It’s real. And in no other condition than one related to the spine is this more real. The spine is the support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows it, too. Brooks back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain effectively eases both body and mind pain to let our patients find an agreeable quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is eased with our Cox® Technic System of decompression.

MIND AND BODY: DEPRESSION IN BACK PAIN PATIENTS

Leading causes of disability around the world include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A study of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, exemplified how anxiety and depression have an effect on a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients experience negatively impacts their overall well-being. (1) A new review of medical studies links these two concerns, too. Anxiety and cervical/lumbar disc herniation, mood/anxiety and lower bone mineral density in men, chronic low back pain and depression, life satisfaction improvement and bone loss prevention in postmenopausal women, quality of life deterioration and multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to alleviate pain and give control of it in the hands of our Brooks patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is prepared for our Brooks back pain patients every step of the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. They are shown to raise the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs impede the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system. (3) We all need clear minds to deal with life with and without back pain.

THE DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY OF BACK PAIN

Depression and anxiety are states of mind most everyone contends with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety frequently go together with their pain experience. Understandably, higher levels of depression often result from more pain and a lower sense of personal control of pain and overall health. More anxiety often extends from stronger beliefs about negative consequences of illness, negative emotional views of the illness, and depression. These findings support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Soft Health and Healing Clinic to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Brooks CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Brooks chiropractic patients and your Brooks chiropractor – the more specific wonder is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new study reports that symptoms of depression were reduced in such adults who did exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out ahead of the other. Both indicated promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Soft Health and Healing Clinic ensures that Brooks chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
