Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting McHenry chiropractic care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


McHenry chiropractic patients understand that visiting their chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is valuable. Their back pain and neck pain gets better. McHenry chiropractic patients feel better when they leave OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. A benefit McHenry chiropractic patients may not necessarily appreciate since they are chiropractic patients presently is that seeing a chiropractor lowers the odds of back surgery. A recent report stated that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider seen for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who visited a surgeon|first consulted a surgeon first underwent surgery while only 1.5% of those who visited a chiropractor first had back surgery. (1) Furthermore, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is recorded particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is outlined in a new published case report. (2) For a depressed McHenry back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is most welcome!

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

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wishes joy for all our McHenry back pain patients to improve their back pain and their outlook on life.

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

In developed countries, two of the most common reasons to visit a doctor were for depression/anxiety and back pain. (3) Seeing these two issues together is not unusual at all at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. Back pain sufferers have a tendency to struggle with depression. 20.2% of back pain patients with spondylosis and disc conditions among others experience depression and spend more on health care for their health concerns. (4) This connection is even stronger for chronic low back pain sufferers. (5) So this holiday season, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s wish for McHenry back pain sufferers is that they notice the joy and cheer around them. It just may improve their back pain, too! That is the goal of McHenry chiropractic care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.
