Carrolltown Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It is real. And in no other condition than one related to the spine is this more real. The spine is the body’s support system. When it hurts, the body knows it. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows it, too. Carrolltown back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain efficiently soothes both body and mind pain to allow our patients to discover an enjoyable 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 incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. An analysis 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 feel 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 increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to alleviate pain and place control of its effect on our back pain patients’ lives back into their hands. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is prepared for our Carrolltown back pain patients all along the way. Using 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 stop 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 often go hand-in-hand with their pain experience. Logically, higher levels of depression often come from more pain and a lower sense of personal control of pain and overall health. More anxiety often extends from stronger beliefs about negative results of illness, negative emotional thoughts of the illness, and depression. These findings support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Carrolltown 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 – Carrolltown chiropractic patients and your Carrolltown chiropractor – the more exact curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study reports that symptoms of depression were decreased in such adults who did exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out superior. Both showed promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation makes sure that Carrolltown chiropractic patients know this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
