Plainville 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. Layden Chiropractic knows it, too. Plainville 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 reduces both body and mind pain to let our patients 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 globally include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. An analysis of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, demonstrated how anxiety and depression influence a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients feel negatively impacts their overall well-being. (1) A recent review of medical studies connects 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 wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. Layden Chiropractic 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 Plainville patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Layden Chiropractic is ready for our Plainville 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 prolonged use. These drugs stop 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 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 comes from deeper beliefs about negative results of illness, negative emotional thoughts of the illness, and depression. These conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Layden Chiropractic to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Plainville 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 – Plainville chiropractic patients and your Plainville chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study reports that symptoms of depression were decreased in such adults who did exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out superior. Both indicated promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Layden Chiropractic ensures that Plainville chiropractic patients get this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
