Baton Rouge 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 support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows it, also. Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain efficiently alleviates both body and mind pain to allow our patients to discover an agreeable quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is eased 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 report of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis exemplified how anxiety and depression affect a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients feel negatively affects their overall well-being. (1) A new 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 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. Spine & Sports Rehab 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 Baton Rouge patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is prepared for our Baton Rouge back pain patients every step of the way. Using anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. They are shown to raise 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 everyone contends with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety often go together with their pain experience. Understandably, 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 stronger beliefs about negative effects 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 Spine & Sports Rehab Center to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Baton Rouge chiropractic patients and your Baton Rouge chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new study states 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 showed promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Spine & Sports Rehab Center makes sure that Baton Rouge chiropractic patients know this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
