Depression Care in Boulder

arms crossed in front of faceRecognizing the link between physical pain, anxiety, and depression is key to understanding how collectively they affect your nerve system. Your nerve system, comprising the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves running through your body, is the thread connecting all three of these ailments.


The Influence of the Nervous System

Your nerve system holds tremendous control over your daily reality. It regulates everything from organ function to perceiving and reacting to circumstances. Imagine being in a building and deciding to trigger the fire alarm just to hear it, then staying there for minutes, hours, or even days. How would your body react?

Your nerve system would ramp up, increasing the release of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, initiating a fight-or-flight response. This would result in a heightened heart rate, increased blood flow to your muscles, and other stress-related physiological changes.

Similarly, chronic stress and anxiety can amplify nerve system responses, affecting neuroplasticity in brain regions linked to pain and emotional states.

The Cyclical Impact of Excessive Stress and Anxiety

The link between your nerve system and mental disorders like depression and anxiety can generate far-reaching effects. When you consistently experience high levels of stress and anxiety coupled with physical pain, it results in inefficient neural communication, also known as “noisy communication,” potentially stoking the progression of depression. This can have serious implications on various body functions, including heart function, immune response, and kidney health.
