Manahawkin 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. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we see in our Manahawkin back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center creates individualized Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that include chiropractic treatment, home exercise, and nutrition. Adding mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is often beneficial and supported.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain frequently holds a sufferer back from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin 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 varying 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 found that mindfulness-based therapy had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Additionally, researchers discovered 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 received lately. Many do not seek it out as they may. One interesting note about those who do seek help stemmed 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 has a mental health issue or not, do not avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Manahawkin back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Manahawkin back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
