Manahawkin 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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows it, too. Manahawkin back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan for spine-related pain efficiently eases both body and mind pain to let our patients discover a satisfying 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. A report of a specific set of patients, those with lumbar spondylolisthesis, demonstrated how anxiety and depression affect 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 issues, 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 multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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 Manahawkin patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here for our Manahawkin 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 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 of us contend 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 comes from stronger beliefs about negative consequences 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 Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is an accepted fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Manahawkin chiropractic patients and your Manahawkin chiropractor – the more specific curiosity is whether exercise is beneficial for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study reports that symptoms of depression were reduced in such adults who did exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out superior. Both indicated promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center ensures that Manahawkin chiropractic patients get this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
