Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

March 09, 2021

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we are a member of the chiropractic profession, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc designs individualized Fort Wayne 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. Adding mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is often helpful and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain often keeps a sufferer from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can take a mindful approach to dealing with the mind and its struggle with the pain and related depression and/or varying levels of sadness is reported to help. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who added a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers found that mindfulness-based treatment had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers discovered that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. It’s 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 has a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid reaching out for assistance with depression related to Fort Wayne back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical side of spine pain and encourages our Fort Wayne back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
