What is depression?

Depression is characterised by feelings of extreme sadness, helplessness or hopelessness that lasts for weeks or months and interferes with your everyday activities. Depression can vary from mild to severe, and cause symptoms of fatigue, irritability, tearfulness and losing interest in things that used to be enjoyable.

Physical symptoms of depression include headaches, backaches, constipation, changes in weight and difficulty sleeping.

Depression can be triggered by many different factors including stressful life events such as divorce, illness, bereavement and work or financial problems. Other risk factors of depression are family history, drinking excess alcohol and taking drugs.

Many people with depression can be helped by physiotherapy. Physiotherapy treatment targets the physical symptoms of depression and improves energy levels, reduces pain and improves sleeping patterns. Physiotherapy treatment will also have an impact on your mood and allows you to enjoy the activities important to you.
