Severna Park 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 body’s support system. When it hurts, the body knows it. Back And Neck Care Center knows it, also. Severna Park 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 an enjoyable 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

Leading causes of disability globally include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A study of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis demonstrated how anxiety and depression affect a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients experience 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 decline and multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Back And Neck Care Center 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 Severna Park patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Back And Neck Care Center is here for our Severna Park 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 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 everyone contends with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety often 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 effects 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 Back And Neck Care Center to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is good for the body. That’s an accepted fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Severna Park chiropractic patients and your Severna Park chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study states that symptoms of depression were reduced in such adults who used 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. Back And Neck Care Center ensures that Severna Park chiropractic patients get this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
