Eugene 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. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows it, also. Eugene back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. The chiropractic treatment plan at our office for spine-related pain efficiently relieves both body and mind pain to allow our patients to find a satisfying 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 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 impacts 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 decline and increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care helps. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to ease 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. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is prepared for our Eugene 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 long-term 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 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 stronger beliefs about negative effects 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 Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Eugene 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 – Eugene chiropractic patients and your Eugene 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 used exercise (low dose) and manual therapy and/or general strengthening and moderate exercise. (5) Neither came out superior. Both showed promise in reducing depression. That’s good news. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic makes sure that Eugene chiropractic patients get this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
