Ottawa Depression due to Back Pain Helped with Cox® Technic

The mind-body connection. It’s 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. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows it, also. Ottawa 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 enjoyable 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

Top causes of disability globally include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of patients 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 connects 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 increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally wrestle with the impact these issues have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers evidence-based chiropractic care in the form of 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. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is prepared for our Ottawa back pain patients all along the way. Taking anti-depressants – anti-cholinergic drugs - may not be the answer depressed back pain patients want. They are shown to increase the risk of dementia with long-term use. These drugs impede 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 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 results 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 The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: Ottawa 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 – Ottawa chiropractic patients and your Ottawa chiropractor – the more specific wonder is whether exercise is beneficial 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. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider makes sure that Ottawa chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
