Tarrytown 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 support for the body. When it hurts, the body knows it. Tarrytown Chiropractic knows it, too. Tarrytown 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 enjoyable quality of life. Back pain’s depression often is relieved 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 demonstrated how anxiety and depression influence 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 connects 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 multiple osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Tarrytown Chiropractic offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and place control of its effect on our back pain patients’ lives back into their hands. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Tarrytown Chiropractic is ready for our Tarrytown back pain patients all along the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer for depressed patients. They are shown to increase the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs stop 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. 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 thoughts of the illness, and depression. These findings support the need for more honest advising of chronic back pain patients. (4) You can trust Tarrytown Chiropractic to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Tarrytown 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 – Tarrytown chiropractic patients and your Tarrytown chiropractor – the more specific wonder is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study reports 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 indicated promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Tarrytown Chiropractic makes sure that Tarrytown chiropractic patients get this and provides safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
