Vancouver Disc Centers 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 Disc Centers inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Vancouver back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Vancouver Disc Centers creates individualized Vancouver chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that incorporate chiropractic treatment, nutrition, and home exercise. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is often beneficial and supported.


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 experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to coping 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 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 discovered that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. Use is better than it used to be 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 positively motivated 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 pursuing assistance with depression related to Vancouver back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Vancouver Disc Centers 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 deal with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
