Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Vancouver chiropractic patients realize that visiting their chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre is valuable. Their back pain and neck pain eases. Vancouver chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Vancouver Spine Care Centre. A benefit Vancouver chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize since they are chiropractic patients already is that seeing a chiropractor reduces the odds of back surgery. A recent report stated that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider consulted for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who visited a surgeon|first went to a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who visited a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Furthermore, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This link between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is documented particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is described in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Vancouver back pain sufferer, any relief from chiropractic care is acceptable!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was thinking about back surgery when she visited him for her back pain and found relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

Vancouver Spine Care Centre wishes joy for all our Vancouver back pain patients to improve their back pain and their outlook on life.

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Enjoying the Holiday [Joy|Cheer]33] Helps the Back Pain Sufferer and the Vancouver Back Pain!

In developed countries, two of the most familiar reasons to consult a doctor were for depression/anxiety and back pain. (3) Seeing these two issues together is not unusual at all at Vancouver Spine Care Centre. Back pain sufferers tend to deal with depression. 20.2% of back pain patients with spondylosis and disc conditions among others deal with depression and use more money on health care for their conditions. (4) This relationship is even stronger for chronic low back pain sufferers. (5) So this holiday season, Vancouver Spine Care Centre’s wish for Vancouver back pain sufferers is that they feel the happiness and cheer around them. It just may help their back pain, too! That is the target of Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre.
