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

The mind-body connection. It is 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. Cross Chiropractic Center knows it, too. Sandy Springs 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 eases both body and mind pain to let our patients find 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 globally incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis showed how anxiety and depression change a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients experience negatively affects their overall well-being. (1) A new 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 increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. Cross Chiropractic Center offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease pain and put control of its effect on our back pain patients’ lives back into their hands. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Cross Chiropractic Center is prepared for our Sandy Springs back pain patients every step of the way. Taking 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 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. 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 comes from deeper beliefs about negative effects 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 Cross Chiropractic Center to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Sandy Springs 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 – Sandy Springs chiropractic patients and your Sandy Springs chiropractor – the more exact wonder is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new 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 ahead of the other. Both indicated promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Cross Chiropractic Center makes sure that Sandy Springs chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
