West Des Moines 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. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows it, too. West Des Moines back pain and neck pain and spine-related pain patients know it, too. Our chiropractic treatment plan 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 lessened with our Cox® Technic System of decompression.

MIND AND BODY: DEPRESSION IN BACK PAIN PATIENTS

Top causes of disability around the world include musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders like anxiety and depression. A report of patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis showed how anxiety and depression change 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 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 increased osteoporotic fractures. Adults over 45 years of age with musculoskeletal diseases mentally struggle with the impact these matters have on their lifestyle. (2) That is where chiropractic care helps. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers evidence-based chiropractic care with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to alleviate pain and give control of it in the hands of our West Des Moines patients. There is hope. There is life during and after treatment. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is here for our West Des Moines back pain patients every step of 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 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 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 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 Executive Chiropractic of Iowa to be honest!

HELP FOR DEPRESSION: West Des Moines 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 – West Des Moines chiropractic patients and your West Des Moines chiropractor – the more specific wonder is whether exercise is good for chronic low back pain patients’ minds. A new 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 reducing depression. That’s good news. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa makes sure that West Des Moines chiropractic patients know this and delivers safe, gentle, effective, pain-relieving treatment.
