Soft Health and Healing Clinic Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Being part of the chiropractic profession, Soft Health and Healing Clinic inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we see in our Brooks back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Soft Health and Healing Clinic creates individualized Brooks 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. The addition of mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is often beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires 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 Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 associated depression and/or varying levels of sadness is reported to help. In a study of mindfulness-based therapy specifically for back pain sufferers with a lumbar disc herniation, researchers found that mindfulness-based treatment had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers uncovererd that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. Use is better than it used to be 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 resulted 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 suffers with a mental health issue or not, do not avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Brooks back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 Brooks back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
