Southern New Hampshire Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

September 03, 2019

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. New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows it, also. Southern New Hampshire back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain efficiently reduces both body and mind pain to allow our patients to find an agreeable 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

Top causes of disability globally incorporate 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 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 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 multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. New Hampshire Spine and Sport offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and give control of it in the hands of our Southern New Hampshire patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. New Hampshire Spine and Sport is ready for our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients all along 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 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 together 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 conclusions support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust New Hampshire Spine and Sport to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Southern New Hampshire 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 – Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients and your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor – the more specific wonder 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 used 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. New Hampshire Spine and Sport makes sure that Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
