San Jose Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It’s 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. Chiropractic Solutions knows it, also. San Jose 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 alleviates both body and mind pain to let our patients discover an enjoyable 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 include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report 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 experience negatively impacts their overall well-being. (1) A recent 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 wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care comes into play. Chiropractic Solutions offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to reduce pain and give control of it in the hands of our San Jose patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Chiropractic Solutions is prepared for our San Jose back pain patients all along the way. Using 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 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 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 extends from deeper beliefs about negative effects 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 Chiropractic Solutions to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: San Jose CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is valuable for the body. That is a known fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – San Jose chiropractic patients and your San Jose chiropractor – the more exact curiosity is whether exercise is good 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 showed promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Chiropractic Solutions makes sure that San Jose chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
