Vancouver Spine Care Centre Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we are part of the chiropractic profession, Vancouver Spine Care Centre inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Vancouver back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Vancouver Spine Care Centre designs individualized Vancouver 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 encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain frequently keeps a sufferer from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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 associated depression and/or varying levels of sadness is found 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 uncovererd that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. It’s better than it once was with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many do not seek it out as they could. One interesting 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 has a mental health issue or not, do not avoid seeking help with depression related to Vancouver back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Vancouver Spine Care Centre offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical side of spine pain and encourages our Vancouver back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
