Spine & Sports Rehab Center Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we are part of the chiropractic profession, Spine & Sports Rehab Center adds “spine” to this connection, rendering 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 can’t help but hurt, too. Spine & Sports Rehab Center creates 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. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is often beneficial and supported.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can choose 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 found that mindfulness-based treatment had a good 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. It is better than it once was with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many do not seek it out as they may. One interesting 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 suffers with a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Baton Rouge back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression.
