Pflugerville 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. Pflugerville Wellness Center knows it, too. Pflugerville back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain effectively eases both body and mind pain to allow our patients to find an enjoyable 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 include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. An analysis of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, showed how anxiety and depression have an effect on 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 increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care comes into play. Pflugerville Wellness Center offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pain and give control of it in the hands of our Pflugerville patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Pflugerville Wellness Center is prepared for our Pflugerville 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 long-term use. These drugs block 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 hand-in-hand 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 stronger beliefs about negative results 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 Pflugerville Wellness Center to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Pflugerville 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 – Pflugerville chiropractic patients and your Pflugerville chiropractor – the more exact curiosity 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 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. Pflugerville Wellness Center makes sure that Pflugerville chiropractic patients know this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
