Apple Country Chiropractic Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we’re part of the chiropractic profession, Apple Country Chiropractic adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we observe in our Williamson back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Apple Country Chiropractic creates individualized Williamson 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 helpful and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain often holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can choose a mindful approach to dealing with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related depression and/or varying levels of sadness is found to help. In a study of mindfulness-based therapy specifically for sufferers with lumbar disc herniation related back pain, researchers found that mindfulness-based therapy had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Additionally, researchers discovered that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. Use is better than it used to be with all the notice mental health has seen of late. Many don’t seek it out as they could. One curious 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 reaching out for help with depression related to Williamson back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get support for pain-related depression. Apple Country Chiropractic offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Williamson back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
