Malverne 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. Malverne Health & Wellness knows it, also. Malverne 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 around the world incorporate musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis showed how anxiety and depression influence a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients experience negatively affects 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 deterioration and increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Malverne Health & Wellness offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce 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. Malverne Health & Wellness is prepared for our Malverne back pain patients every step of the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. They are shown to raise 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 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 views of the illness, and depression. These findings support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Malverne Health & Wellness to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Malverne 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 – Malverne chiropractic patients and your Malverne 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 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 showed promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Malverne Health & Wellness ensures that Malverne chiropractic patients know this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
