Fort Wayne Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic09/03/2019The mind-body connection. It’s real. And in few other conditions is it more real than in spine-related pain conditions. The spine is the support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC knows it, also. Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain efficiently soothes both body and mind pain to let our patients discover a satisfying 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 study of patients 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 recent 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 decline and increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC 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. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is prepared for our Fort Wayne back pain patients every step of 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 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 deeper beliefs about negative results 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 Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC to be honest! HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Fort Wayne 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 – Fort Wayne chiropractic patients and your Fort Wayne chiropractor – the more exact wonder is whether exercise is beneficial 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 reducing depression. That’s good news.
