Chiropractic Solutions Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we are a member of the chiropractic profession, Chiropractic Solutions inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we see in our San Jose back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Chiropractic Solutions creates individualized San Jose 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 often beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain often holds a sufferer back from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your San Jose chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer 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 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, underutilization of those services is common. It is better than it once was with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many don’t 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 supportively 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 reaching out for help with depression related to San Jose back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get support for pain-related depression. Chiropractic Solutions 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 San Jose back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
