Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

March 09, 2021

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers designs individualized Baton Rouge 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 beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain frequently holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can choose a mindful approach to dealing 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 treatment had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers uncovererd that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. It’s better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has received of late. Many do not seek it out as they may. One curious note about those who do seek help stemmed 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 Baton Rouge back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers 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 Baton Rouge back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
