Minster Chiropractic Center Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we’re a member of the chiropractic profession, Minster Chiropractic Center adds “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Minster back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Minster Chiropractic Center designs individualized Minster chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that include chiropractic treatment, nutrition, and home exercise. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times helpful and supported.

MIND-BODY-SPINE PAIN

Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain often keeps a sufferer from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related depression and/or varying levels of sadness is found to be helpful. In a study of mindfulness-based therapy specifically for back pain sufferers with a lumbar disc herniation, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based treatment had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers discovered that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. It’s better than it once was with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many don’t seek it out as they may. One curious note about those who do seek help resulted from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which supportively motivated them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who suffers with a mental health issue or not, do not avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Minster back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Minster Chiropractic Center offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Minster back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
