Baton Rouge Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It is real. And in few other conditions is it more real than in spine-related pain conditions. The spine is the body’s support system. When it hurts, the body knows it. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows it, too. Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain effectively reduces both body and mind pain to allow our patients to find 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 globally include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. An analysis of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis showed how anxiety and depression change 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 links 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 multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation offers evidence-based chiropractic care with 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. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 depressed back pain patients want. They are shown to increase the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs impede 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 hand-in-hand with their pain experience. Logically, 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 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 Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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’s 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 good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new study reports 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 ahead of the other. Both indicated promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation ensures that Baton Rouge chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
