Chiropractic Care Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we are a member of the chiropractic profession, Chiropractic Care inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we observe in our West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Chiropractic Care designs individualized West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that include chiropractic treatment, home exercise, and nutrition. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is often beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain often holds a sufferer back from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind and its struggle with the pain and associated depression and/or varying levels of sadness is reported to help. In a study of mindfulness-based therapy specifically for sufferers with lumbar disc herniation related back pain, researchers found that mindfulness-based therapy had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Additionally, researchers discovered that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. Use is better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has seen lately. Many do not seek it out as they may. One interesting note about those who do seek help stemmed from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which supportively influenced 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 seeking assistance with depression related to West Palm Beach back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression. Chiropractic Care offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical side of spine pain and encourages our West Palm Beach back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
