Mind-body-SPINE connection. The mind-body connection is in the health news a lot. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Augusta back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic designs individualized Augusta 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 these spine care practices is many times helpful and supported.
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 Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can take a mindful approach to dealing with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related 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 treatment 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, underutilization of those services is common. It is better than it once was with all the attention mental health has received of late. Many don’t seek it out as they could. One curious 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 seeking assistance with depression related to Augusta back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get support for pain-related depression. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical part of spine pain and encourages our Augusta back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
