Burlington and Hamilton 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. Spinal Care Clinic knows it, too. Burlington and Hamilton back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain effectively eases both body and mind pain to allow our patients to discover an agreeable quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is relieved 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 study of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis exemplified how anxiety and depression influence 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 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 wrestle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care comes into play. Spinal Care Clinic offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to alleviate pain and give control of it in the hands of our Burlington and Hamilton patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Spinal Care Clinic is here for our Burlington and Hamilton 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 increase the risk of dementia with long-term 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 frequently 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 comes from deeper beliefs about negative consequences 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 Spinal Care Clinic to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is beneficial for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients and your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor – the more specific wonder is whether exercise is beneficial 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 ahead of the other. Both indicated promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Spinal Care Clinic ensures that Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
