Layden Chiropractic Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Layden Chiropractic inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Plainville back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Layden Chiropractic designs individualized Plainville 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 many times helpful 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 Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind and its struggle with the pain and related depression and/or fluctuating 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) Further, researchers uncovererd that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. It is better than it used to be with all the notice mental health has received lately. Many don’t seek it out as they may. One curious note about those who do seek help stemmed from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which supportively 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 Plainville back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Layden 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 Plainville back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
