Colorado Springs Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows it, also. Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain effectively 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

Leading causes of disability around the world incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A study of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, showed how anxiety and depression affect 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 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 decline and increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pain and place control of its effect on our back pain patients’ lives back into their hands. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is here for our Colorado Springs 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 everyone contends with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety frequently go hand-in-hand with their pain experience. Understandably, 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 views of the illness, and depression. These findings support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Colorado Springs 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 – Colorado Springs chiropractic patients and your Colorado Springs 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 used exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out superior. Both showed promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR makes sure that Colorado Springs chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
