Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation first may lessen the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Baton Rouge chiropractic patients realize that seeing their chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is beneficial. Their back pain and neck pain eases. Baton Rouge chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. A benefit Baton Rouge chiropractic patients may not necessarily appreciate because they are chiropractic patients presently is that consulting a chiropractor lowers the odds of back surgery. A recent report noted that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider consulted for the back pain injury. 42.7% of workers who consulted a surgeon|first consulted a surgeon first underwent surgery while only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Furthermore, the chiropractic adjustment works wonders on the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is noted particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is described in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Baton Rouge back pain sufferer, any relief from chiropractic care is most welcome!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was thinking about back surgery when she visited him for her back pain and found relief with his chiropractic care implementing the Cox® Technic System.

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation wishes joy for all our Baton Rouge back pain patients to boost their back pain and their outlook on life.

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Enjoying the Holiday [Joy|Cheer]33] Helps the Back Pain Sufferer and the Baton Rouge Back Pain!

In developed countries, two of the most common reasons to visit a doctor were for depression/anxiety and back pain. (3) Seeing these two issues together is not uncommon at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. Back pain sufferers have a tendency to struggle with depression. 20.2% of back pain patients with spondylosis and disc issues among others deal with depression and spend more on health care for their conditions. (4) This relationship is even stronger for chronic low back pain sufferers. (5) So this holiday season, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation’s wish for Baton Rouge back pain sufferers is that they notice the joy and cheer around them. It just may improve their back pain, too! That’s the goal of Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation.
