Palmer 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 part of the chiropractic profession, Palmer Chiropractic Center inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we observe in our Lynchburg back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Palmer Chiropractic Center designs individualized Lynchburg 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. The addition of mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain often holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient 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 sufferers with lumbar disc herniation related back pain, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based treatment 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. It is better than it once was with all the notice mental health has seen 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 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 pursuing help with depression related to Lynchburg back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 Lynchburg back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
