Auburn Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

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 support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows it, too. Auburn back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain effectively reduces both body and mind pain to let our patients find an agreeable 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

Top causes of disability globally incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A study of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, exemplified how anxiety and depression have an effect on a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients feel 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 multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 Auburn patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is prepared for our Auburn back pain patients every step of the way. Using anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. 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 of us contend with at some point in life. For chronic low back pain patients, depression and anxiety often go together with their pain experience. Logically, 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 results 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 Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Auburn CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is good for the body. That’s a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Auburn chiropractic patients and your Auburn 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 decreased in such adults who did exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out ahead of the other. Both showed promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. makes sure that Auburn chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
