West Palm Beach Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It is real. And in few other conditions is it more real than in spine-related pain conditions. The spine is the body’s support system. When it hurts, the body knows it. Chiropractic Care knows it, too. West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain efficiently eases both body and mind pain to let our patients 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

Top causes of disability globally incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, demonstrated 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 decline and increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care helps. Chiropractic Care offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and put control of its effect on our back pain patients’ lives back into their hands. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Chiropractic Care is ready for our West Palm Beach back pain patients every step of the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer depressed back pain patients want. They are shown to increase the risk of dementia with prolonged 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 frequently go together 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 effects of illness, negative emotional views of the illness, and depression. These conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Chiropractic Care to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is an accepted fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – West Palm Beach chiropractic patients and your West Palm Beach chiropractor – the more exact wonder is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent 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 showed promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Chiropractic Care makes sure that West Palm Beach chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
