A feeling of depression can often be related to a problem in the thoracic spine (between the shoulder blades). Muscle spasm interferes with the return circulation of blood around the thoracic spine and this causes a ‘water logging’ of the sympathetic ganglion. This results in an overall inadequate activity of the sympathetic nerve system causing fatigue and many other symptoms. The brain can increase the sympathetic drive in a state of fright by stimulating the anxiety fright centre. In the case of the patient with back trouble, the anxiety centre is stimulated to improve the whole body function. The patient feels very tensed up. In a number of people the brain cannot sustain this without a reaction and a depression sets in.
Treatment with Interx neurostimulation and EFT (tapping) can reduce symptoms.
