New Roads Chiropractic Center Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. The mind-body connection is in the health news a lot. Since we are a member of the chiropractic profession, New Roads Chiropractic Center adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our New Roads back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. New Roads Chiropractic Center creates individualized New Roads chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that incorporate chiropractic treatment, home exercise, and nutrition. Adding mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is many times beneficial and encouraged.


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 experiencing a joyful life. When working with your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind and its struggle with the pain and related depression and/or fluctuating 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 positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers found that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. Use is better than it used to be with all the notice mental health has seen lately. Many do not seek it out as they could. One curious note about those who do seek help resulted from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which positively motivated them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who has a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid pursuing help with depression related to New Roads back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression. New Roads 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 New Roads back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
