Preston 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 support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Chiropractic Associates knows it, too. Preston 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 allow our patients to discover a satisfying 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. A report of patients 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 recent 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 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care helps. Chiropractic Associates 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. Chiropractic Associates is here for our Preston back pain patients all along the way. Using 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 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 of us contend with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety often go together with their pain experience. Logically, 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 deeper beliefs about negative results 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 Associates to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Preston CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is good for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Preston chiropractic patients and your Preston chiropractor – the more exact curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new 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 ahead of the other. Both showed promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Chiropractic Associates ensures that Preston chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
