Back And Neck Care 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, Back And Neck Care Center inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Severna Park back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Back And Neck Care Center designs individualized Severna Park chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that incorporate chiropractic treatment, nutrition, and home exercise. Adding mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is often beneficial and supported.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain often keeps a sufferer from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can choose a mindful approach to dealing with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related depression and/or varying levels of sadness is found to help. In a study of mindfulness-based therapy specifically for back pain sufferers with a lumbar disc herniation, researchers found that mindfulness-based therapy had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers found that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. Use is better than it once was with all the attention mental health has received lately. Many do not seek it out as they could. One curious note about those who do seek help stemmed from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which positively influenced them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who suffers with a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Severna Park back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get support for pain-related depression. Back And Neck Care Center offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical part of spine pain and encourages our Severna Park back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
