St. Francisville Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It’s real. And in few other conditions is it more real than in spine-related pain conditions. The spine is the support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows it, too. St. Francisville back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain efficiently relieves both body and mind pain to allow our patients to discover a satisfying quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is lessened with our Cox® Technic System of decompression.

MIND AND BODY: DEPRESSION IN BACK PAIN PATIENTS

Top causes of disability around the world incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. An analysis of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, demonstrated how anxiety and depression change a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients feel negatively affects their overall well-being. (1) A new review of medical studies connects 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 decline and increased 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 comes into play. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pain and give control of it in the hands of our St. Francisville patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here for our St. Francisville back pain patients all along the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer depressed back pain patients want. They are shown to raise the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs block 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 of us contend with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety often go hand-in-hand with their pain experience. Understandably, higher levels of depression often come from more pain and a lower sense of personal control of pain and overall health. More anxiety often comes from stronger beliefs about negative results of illness, negative emotional thoughts of the illness, and depression. These conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is beneficial for the body. That’s a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – St. Francisville chiropractic patients and your St. Francisville chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study states 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 showed promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville makes sure that St. Francisville chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
