Millville 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows it, also. Millville back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain effectively soothes both body and mind pain to allow our patients to find an agreeable 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 include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis showed how anxiety and depression have an effect on 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 connects these two issues, 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 struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Wilson Family Chiropractic 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic is ready for our Millville back pain patients all along the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. 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 of us contend with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety frequently 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 comes 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 Wilson Family Chiropractic to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Millville 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 – Millville chiropractic patients and your Millville chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic ensures that Millville chiropractic patients get this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
