Largo 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows it, also. Largo 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 let our patients discover an agreeable 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 affect a person’s well-being. Emotional distress and disability that patients experience 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 old with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That’s where chiropractic care helps. Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to alleviate 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is prepared for our Largo back pain patients all along the way. Using 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 often 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 effects 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 Hollstrom & Associates Inc to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Largo CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Help for back pain depression is built into the chiropractic treatment plan, especially exercise. Exercise is good for the body. That’s an accepted fact. Is exercise good for the mind? For those of us dealing with chronic low back pain – Largo chiropractic patients and your Largo chiropractor – the more exact curiosity is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A recent study states 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 ahead of the other. Both indicated promise in lessening depression. That’s good news. Hollstrom & Associates Inc makes sure that Largo chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
