The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR creates individualized Colorado Springs 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. The addition of mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is often beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain frequently holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can choose a mindful approach to coping with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is found to help. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who utlilized a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers discovered 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. It is better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many don’t 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 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 reaching out for help with depression related to Colorado Springs back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 Colorado Springs back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
