Young Chiropractic Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

March 09, 2021

Mind-body-SPINE connection. The mind-body connection is in the health news a lot. Since we’re part of the chiropractic profession, Young Chiropractic inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Easley back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Young Chiropractic designs individualized Easley 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. The addition of mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times helpful 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 enjoying life. When working with your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to dealing with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is reported 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 therapy had a positive 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. It’s better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has received of late. Many don’t seek it out as they could. One interesting 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, don’t avoid reaching out for help with depression related to Easley back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get support for pain-related depression. Young Chiropractic 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 Easley back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
